The German Film Office is pleased to present the film In My Room by Ulrich Köhler, arguably one of the best films to come out of Germany in recent years. The film will be available to stream across the United States.

Ulrich Köhler’s fourth feature takes a disarmingly realistic and restrained approach to a fantastical premise: the eternally popular fantasy of the last man on earth. Sad-sack, 40ish TV cameraman Armin (Hans Löw) has been summoned home by his father to help tend to his terminally ill grandmother, but awakens one morning to find the world around him entirely depopulated. Eventually, the film introduces a fellow survivor, an Eve (Elena Radonicich) to complicate the apparent contentment of its Adam. In My Room is a film of meticulous details and sly, subtle ironies, crafted by the skills, temperament, and philosophical inquiry of an emerging master.

In My Room premiered at the Un Certain Regard section of the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.

“A disquieting, wonderfully imagined survivalist drama.” (Guy Lodge, Variety)

“A mysterious and surprising movie. A wondrously wry and counterintuitive tale of postapocalyptic survival.” (Justin Chang, LA Times)
