      Elle M i really loved this movie, it was filmed really well and the acting was so good, i think jakub did so well with his role even with it being his first movie as the lead role. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Hits you in the feels. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member [contains spoilers] This movie delivers its message in a concise, yet subtle way. It shows the most accurate portrayal of mental health that I have seen thus far in film. It discusses mental health and its relation to technology; while the internet in general can be seen as an escape from reality, this goes deeper. Its depictions of the virtual world and the characters' dialogue describing this reality suggests how glamorized it is. This includes what we could call our antagonist, Slywia. She glamorizes and romanticizes self destructive behavior, and whether she is aware of it or not, hurts Dominik's mental health in doing do. When he is mentally weak, which is caused by bullying in school and a cold family, she turns him towards her own unhealthy coping mechanisms. As we watch him slowly begin to trust her poor advice and beliefs, we also watch his mental health deteriorate even more. A former member of the Suicide Room points out that she is manipulative and deceitful; it is up to the viewer to determine whether these negative traits are something she intends or not. Either way, it effects Dominik in negative ways. His tolerance towards it is shown through their romantic relationship and his infatuation towards Sylwia. This can depict how we seek comfort in groups with those that have poor mental health, although there is comfort in knowing we are not alone, there is plenty of room for encouragement of self-destructive behavior to occur, especially when the main focus is depression. Technology also plays a large role in this film. One of the first scenes shows a video on the internet of a person self-harming, a heart cut into their arm. Right off the bat, this suggests the romanticization of self destructive behavior. Social media is a large cause of Dominik becoming self conscious about his sexuality and reputation at school. Even when his death is filmed, it connects to the first video being shown. Others comment nealy meaningless things, not knowing the depth of Dominik's death, or even pointing out that it was suicide. There were still shallow comments that were mysteriously worded, similar to the one in the first video. Overall, this movie is a good critique on social media/the internet and its effect on mental health. Good character development. It is sad. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this movie it showed how depression effects teens even though dominik's relationship with his friends at school aren't real and when he finds Sylvia a girl who he can be himself around and she introduces him to other people he gets to know and becomes friends with even though the movie doesn't go into depth about his relationship with the other people in the suicide room at the end it shows how close everyone in that group really was when people start logging off after hearing about dominik. I think this movie expresses isolation and depression a lot better than 13 reasons why and they don't use the love can save you bullshit that 13 reasons why does. The only reason this movie is not in the public eye as much as 13 reasons why (at least not in america) is because it's a French movie. I hate reading subtitles and I watched this movie 4 times. It's a great film and deserves more recognition than it's gotten. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member buena peli, da a entender muchas cosas sobre las personas que se auto-lastiman y pues nos da a conocer todas las razones y motivos Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Giuseppe Sedia Kino Mania Suicide Room is not an ode to emo culture aimed at teenagers, but rather a dark tale about addiction to virtual words (...) Dominik’s polygonal journey into a virtual world represents a crucial step for Polish cinema into a territory thus far unexplored Rated: 4/5 Aug 14, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
