Room, The (Zimmer, Das)

Room, The
Scene from "The Room" (photo courtesy of wtp international)

Sophie and Christoph are looking after a house with a locked room - where everything (...or nothing) can be concealed from others. They project their hidden thoughts and memories into this locked room. "All houses have a forbidden room" says Christoph, Sophie's answer, "just like our souls." Between dream and reality, they develop a labyrinth of emotions. The heart of the story is not the mysterious incidents in the house, but rather the hidden feelings of the occupants.
