  How does it feel when you have to hide for months in a room? The one really knows until one has experienced it. Or you go to the cinema: director Rudi Gaul has dared the experiment to explore the fears, fantasies, and their perception of an incarcerated. The result is a radically subjective, impressive in its visual language film. To understand the special concerns of the young filmmaker, one needs to compare his work with other films on the same subject. Most is in fact the self-hiding Must-described from the outside, so to speak, from the air. Some in Ulla Wagner’s The Invention of Curried Sausage. We see here the deserter, as he passes the time, we see his suffering, his longing, his varying moods. But we see with our eyes on him and his world. In The Room in the mirror we see the environment only with the eyes of the protagonist. We know no more external position, from which we distinguish our point of view of the eye color of the incarcerated. The room is a priori a subjective reality. We see it only as it experiences the film character. The mean Luisa (Kirstin Fischer) and is a Jewish doctor in Nazi times. In order to hide from the Gestapo, her husband Karl has placed them in an empty, pretty run-down attic. In the beginning, Karl comes fairly regularly to them with food, books and sometimes even to provide them with a little luxury. Suddenly Charles visits remain off. It goes by a tormenting time to take the upper hand in Luisa’s fear threatens to losing control over their emotions more and more. , Then eventually turns the sophisticated, glamorous Judith (Eva Wittenzellner) on. And the latest from that date remains open whether Luisa, what happens now, actually experienced or only in the imagination. Actually, this question is irrelevant. We see on the screen, only that which perceives Luisa subjective in their oscillation between escapism and reality drive. Director Rudi Gaul leads us gently approached this blurring, as it were enshrined there in real demonstrable experience. Is not it really the case that we have a knock on the door can not assign one hundred percent if we knock against this fear of death? And we can not actually detract from a novel, a terrible reality, so we sometimes dive into another world? Luisa least experienced with the arrival of more beautiful things Judith – confusing sensual, erotic, attractive and generous enriching experiences. This is Rudi Gaul on the image plane occasion of his admiration for David Lynch to indulge, as he had previously cited elements of expressionistic silent movies and the fantastic film. From this he forms his own handwriting, and a visual language beyond narrative or logical structures. The audience of a self-embedding requires the peculiarities of the dream, the power of the subconscious with his jumps, contradictions and inconsistencies. But those who from the outset in this different “logic” cease and bring plenty of leisure, is to be carried by the power of images. And it might appreciate in a special way that Rudi Gaul, his team and his producers brought this visual debauchery with only 50,000 euros to the canvas. The career changer (vintage 1982) and his friends have all funded with private money and sponsors. also managed from this point: Experiment. (Peter Gutting)
