"In My Room" presents and accepts its partial apocalypse with unquestioning calm - an extreme contrivance that merely enables an elegant, exacting character study.
Neither of the characters are well defined enough to be fully invested in their romance, and so many of the questions you want the film to consider-like, why were these two people left behind-go unasked.
Drum-tight and wonderfully well thought through.
Essentially a two hander, "In My Room" lives and dies on the acting by Hans Löw and Elena Radonicich.
Albenda's choice to frame them in such a spare, fleeting manner ignores the inherent superficiality of the vlog, a tool that manipulates and cheapens self-image more than it personifies.
With the same formal hollowness of the new Berlin school, Köhler revisits the genre of science fiction and the myths of masculinity in a personal key. [Full Review in Spanish]
In My Room often exhibits an interest only in the accruing of incidents, giving it a this-happens-then-this-happens quality that defiantly eschews psychological shading.
What could have been a one-joke movie - Adam and Eve but Adam is super awkward - benefits from Löw's performance, which is both understated and physically demanding, as well as Köhler's rigorous focus on character quirks over the sci-fi conceit.
In My Room's most remarkable and bracing feat with respect to temporality is really just the transformation in Armin himself.
Despite an interesting premise, the development of this interesting topic becomes slow and fairly predictable. [Full review in Spanish]
Although its critique of modern society couldn't be more damning, In My Room is peppered with delightful comic touches.
There's an evident pleasure the film takes in the act of learning, foremost.
