Thursday 30 January 2020

“Romy’s Salon” revolves around a young girl, Romy, who spends time at her grandmother’s hair salon after school. Romy notices changes in her grandmother’s behaviour, due to the onset of Alzheimer’s dementia. The film follows Grandma Stine as her dementia progresses, and highlights the importance of her relationship with her granddaughter and of their (literal and figurative) journey together, through this difficult time.

“Romy’s Salon” is a Dutch-German co-production. It has received awards at several international film festivals. In cooperation with Alzheimer Europe’s German member, the Deutsche Alzheimer Gesellschaft, the film was presented as a preview in several German movie theatres during September 2019. On 30 January 2020, it went on general release in German cinemas.
