My Rating

Movie Info

A night of passion between two people who've just met reveals more than they imagined in this erotic comedy-drama from Spanish filmmaker Julio Medem. Alba (Elena Anaya) is a beautiful woman from Spain who is on the last day of a vacation in Rome when she meets Natasha (Natasha Yarovenko), an attractive fellow tourist from Russia. Alba strikes up a conversation with Natasha, and as she's attracted to other women, Alba invites her to join her at her hotel. After some initial hesitation, Natasha

Veers between an erotic comedy and a pretentious art film.

Audience Reviews for Room In Rome (habitacion En Roma)

Very disappointing, even if the disappointment was expected.

Problematic strangers that briefly meet, easy sex took by could be-why not 'love', nice soundtrack, a few beautiful shots. With te exception of The Lovers of the Arctic Circle, Medem's movies tend to be nothing much but a supposed artisitc, intellectual porn.

Okay, I realize that not everyone enjoys a dialog driven film, but when the dialog is coming from two hot, entwined, butt-naked women does it really matter? Seriously?

-"And what if I'm not Russian?"
-"Come on, you have to be Russian. I love that."
-"Well, then I am.

Room in Rome is an Italian film that follows two women and there sexual escapades in a hotel room.

While this movie tries desperately hard to be sypathetic and artistic, it does nothing more than recycle love story trash that breaks itself down into two different intertwining serpents. Three minutes of storytelling and three minutes of untriggered softcore porn, an alternating pattern that goes on for two hours.

Nothing about how these two met or why the less curious half continues to be involed make any sense or are even explained.

The writing is bad. And I mean bad. It's trying to be a love story, but neither lead acts liek they're in love. They act like they bored and just to to occupy there own time. The script piles on nauseating word choices, progressive pretentiousness and sexplotives. The acting performances only make these traits worse.

Other than the atrotious writting and little attention to character development, of which Room in Rome seems to be most about, is the constant reminder of sex. As the film went on it seemed like there always had to be someone completely nude on screen. The movie would stopped at a hault if there wasn't full frontal exposure during every frame.

"One night of passion that will change their lives"

A hotel room in the center of Rome serves as the setting for two young and recently acquainted women to have a physical adventure that touches their very souls.

Julio Medem has created a film of rare beauty, intoxicating romanticism and scorching eroticism. The girls spend almost the entire film nude, the camera slowly panning over their warmly lit skin and lingering in loving close-up on the passion-lit faces. To a soundtrack of lush pop music and opera and amidst the classical paintings that cover the walls and comment on the action, the girls engage in games of fabricated identity, only gradually pealing off the layers of fantasy to reveal the often tragic secrets that have made them who they are.

It is perhaps ironic that a film about a relationship between two women should be one that drew me into its story more deeply than any romantic film I can remember, and yet I could identify with both and fell in love with both. What makes the film so powerful is not the sex, erotic as that is, but the by turns playful and compassionate interactions between the women. This is an open spontaneous encounter between two people which necessarily changes them, and it is one which captures the rich joy of life.

The film has the classical beauty of a film by Bertolucci or Visconti, but unlike their best films, which tend to look at the darker side of life, "Room in Rome" is ultimately, in spite of some powerful moments of angst, a feel-good movie.
