In My Room

Germany / 2018 / 119 minutes / NR

Lost in life and beset by a recent passing, Armin has nowhere to go and just as much to show for himself. Fate (or something like it) intervenes when Armin awakes one morning and discovers that seemingly all of humanity has disappeared, leaving him to his limited devices and opening the door for self-discovery — until a stranger arrives.

  • "Horrifying, hilarious and deeply humane. The sight of Armin on horseback, a massive rifle strapped to his back, ranks amongst the most inspired images to come out of German cinema in recent memory."

    — Giovanni Marchini Camia, Sight & Sound
  • "Strange, funny, sneakily poignant... A disquieting, wonderfully imagined survivalist drama."

    — Guy Lodge, Variety
  • "A film of meticulous details and sly, subtle ironies... Köhler takes a disarmingly realistic and restrained approach to a fantastical premise: the eternally popular fantasy of the last man on earth."

    — Dennis Lim, Film Comment
  • "Köhler’s post-apocalyptic world is realized with great economy.... I’d love to go on talking about the various turns, but we’re already treading lightly on the narrative’s tastiest reveals."
