The Son’s Room

17 10 2010

Rating: R
Runtime: 1 hr. 27 min.
Rotten Tomatoes: 7.3/10, 84%

The Son’s Room has a great plot line, a psychiatrist who finds himself facing his own mental difficulties as he is forced to deal with the death of his son. But for me, it was a bit too subtle, and that includes the reason for the title, which I never did quite figure out. Maybe I came into the movie with too big of expectations because it won the Cannes Film Festival’s Palm D’Or (Best Motion Picture) award. Or maybe I am too used to American movies that lack the quiet inferences this film utilizes.

What The Son’s Room teaches us is this, we all have the capacity for insanity, and we all want answers to, at least what seems to us, life’s most difficult questions.
