IMDb

Mischa Kamps film Romy’s Salon is based on the book of the same name by Tamara Bos, who is known to Slovenian audiences as the screenplay writer and producer of movie hits Fidgety BramMr. Frog, and Alfie, the Little Werewolf.

“Alzheimer’s is a very common disease. (…) And because of the rise in the ageing population, the incidence of this disease will continue to grow in the years to come. It’s important that a film is made about Alzheimer’s disease, as the subject is still taboo. People are ashamed of this disease, afraid that they will be considered ‘crazy’. If we break the taboo and talk about it, people will come to accept it more as a disease and a lot of people will feel less lonely. It’s just a part of life.”
– Mischa Kamp
