IN MY ROOM
Armin is around 40 and deeply stuck in a mid-life-crisis: He works his job as a cameraman without much care or passion, while at night he tries to get women half his age from a disco into his shabby one room apartment. Then during a visit to his dying grandmother in the Western German province the unbelievable happens: a catastrophe changes life on earth immediately. Armin has to make a completely new beginning. After SLEEPING SICKNESS, Ulrich Köhler impresses with an unusual film about the apocalypse, which couldn’t be further removed from the explosive extravanganzas of Roland Emmerich et al. Instead he gives a reality check to our affluent society’s diffuse longing for a fresh start: How much could we really change?
