    Erotic doesn't even begin to describe this pseudo-foreign, pseudo-lesbian-coming-of-age film about two women who cross paths in Rome and end up together, naked in a hotel room, telling each other lies about themselves, mixing in hints of the truth, attempting to get to know one another. Struggling with their "other" lives, Alba (Elena Anaya), a mousey lesbian with a troubled past holds the reigns of the evening, trying to enlighten Natasha (Natasha Yarovenko), a heterosexual Russian bombshell who is about to get married. Never quite pornography, "Room In Rome" toes the line gracefully, delivering one of the sexiest films I've ever witnessed, while still developing a strong character based narrative between two females shedding light on an unmistakable, yet ultimately tragic love.

    "Room in Rome" starts with Alba(Elena Anaya) inviting Natasha(Natasha Yarovenko) up to her hotel room which she says has never happened to her before since she is really not that kind of girl. After she finally accepts and after some discrete cuddling, Natasha tries to make a break for it while Alba is asleep but leaves her cell phone behind in the rush. So, all she has to do is get past Alba's sinewy frame to retrieve it which is nothing Max(Enrico Lo Verso) has not seen before in his working at the hotel. This time around, Natasha is much less hesitant before Alba starts to tell her a little about her past. While it does take some getting used to the soft focus photography, "Room in Rome" is a casually passionate and erotic movie that also goes below the surface of natural stereotypes of butch and femme with more than its share of circumspection. So, it's only fair in a city that was supposedly founded by twins; that in the stories told there are parallels and possibilities in the lives the characters lead and in the lives they could be living. My only serious quibbles are with a drawn out ending and wondering if Spaniards and Italians can so easily understand each other.

    A film that does not have the best story in the world but it gets a bit interesting. Everything is "an evening" with 2 women who spend a large part of the movie naked in his "Room in Rome"

    <i>"One night of passion that will change their lives"</i> 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. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> 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.
