The Son's Room (Italian: La stanza del figlio) is a 2001 Italian film directed, written, produced by and starring Nanni Moretti. It depicts the psychological effects on a family and their life after the death of their son. It was filmed in and around the city of Ancona.


The film tells a very raw and realistic story of the death of a teenager in a middle-class Italian family. Giovanni has a troubled relationship with his seventeen-year-old son Andrea and would like to make up with him by jogging. Andrea, annoyed by the presence of his father, accepts the invitation, but on the very first day of jogging, Giovanni has a firm commitment. The second day Giovanni has to cancel the jogging with Andrea due to an urgent call from one of his patients. Andrea goes with friends to go scuba diving instead. Unable to make it back to the surface in time after following a fish into a cave, Andrea dies, without being able to be reconciled with his father. Giovanni, with his wife Paola, is no longer able to console himself for the loss of his very young son and he can only give him a final farewell in the funeral home along with all the other young friends of Andrea.

However, each time he starts to develop the project, Moretti leaves the Institute to devote himself to meditation.
