Film Review (Vassilis Kroustallis)
What matters in My Father's Room are sizes and boxes to fit them in. The subject of abuse is potent (bringing to mind the more strenuous Anita Killi's Angry Man), yet Nari Yang dilutes this experiences as an exercise of your fitting in in your geometrical world, which is ready to collapse at each point. Size (growing bigger, being eliminated) is a paramount factor of attention and the mechanism that keeps both narration and the gray visuals in constant order. Never a depression study, My Father's Room is a meditation on bringing in the right memories and boxes to guide you when confronted by difficult situations. An evocative film
