"Room" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 05/26/2017

A young woman who has been held prisoner by a sexual predator for the last seven years spends all of her time locked in a single room with her 5 year old son. Room is has highly unusual approach to the subject matter of kidnap and its victims; instead of concentrating on the criminal aspect, it looks to the victims and how they must adapt and adjust to their circumstances. The story is told from the perspective of the young boy and his mother, who is - quite literally - his entire world.

Immer wieder vergewaltigt und ohne Verbindung zur äusseren Welt. Sie überlegt, wie sie vor dem Monster fliehen soll,d er sie gefangen hält - Das ist nur ein einfacher Entwurf aus dem, was sich in Room vor uns entfaltet als intensiv spürbares filmisches Experiment: Die 24jährige Joy (Brie Larson) und ihr kleiner Sohn Jack leben in einem schäbigen Raum mit Kochecke, Bett, Tisch und Toilette. Alles wirkt ramponiert und schmutzig. Irgendwann merken wir, dass die beiden Insassen eines Gefängnisses sind und den Raum niemals verlassen. Joy seit ihrer Entführung vor sieben Jahren, der Junge seit seiner Geburt. Er ist der Sohn des Entführers, das Ergebnis einer von zahlreichen Vergewaltigungen. Trotzdem liebt Joy ihr Kind über alles. Sie lässt es in dem Glauben aufwachsen, der Raum sei die ganze …
