"The Quiet Room"
Directed by Rolf de Heer
A unique exploration
into the inner thoughts of a seven-year-old girl. It is a world in which she has very
little control, for her parents' marriage is disintegrating. Through her silence, the
child attempts to influence her parents' behavior and force them to communicate properly
with each other and with her. With the marriage speeding toward total collapse, the child
finds ways to make her actions speak even louder and finds the means to reconcile herself
with the world.
