Julio Medem wrote the part of Alba for Elena Anaya. When the actress accepted the role, she and Medem went to Russia to cast the perfect Dasha. After seeing a lot of actresses and models, they found the perfect one, but the night before this woman was to fly to Spain to start rehearsals, her husband read the screenplay and forbade her to play the role which involved nudity and lesbian lovemaking scenes. However, after returning from Russia dejected, Medem and Anaya found Russian-born model Natasha Yarovenko while casting in Spain, specifically in Barcelona, who accepted the role. See more »
In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom. See more »
So... what was your name?
I told you twice already.
Maybe on the third time I get it.
Natasha? Is that the name you said earlier?
You're not saying it right. It's pronounced nah-tat-sha. "Sha".
Sha. And you are Alba which is Spanish for dawn.
That's my unique moment.

When I first watched this movie, I wasn't going to give it a negative thought to it. It was very mind soothing, very sexual, very erotic, it was very interesting to see. When you spending a night in a very exotic locale, you just want to let it loose. You have two young ladies who happen to room together for the night. They spent their times naked, talking about things they do, who they met, what their professions are. Despite their differences, they build a common bond which a memory that will last for a lifetime. The shower scene is classic. Closeness is always going to be a factor here. Now I have be working at a hotel, anything goes from closed doors. No inhibitions were shown, insecurities were not visible there. Rome is romantic for anyone who want to get away, so as the old saying goes "When in Rome, anything goes". This movie is not your typical late-night choice, and it is for late night viewing only! 4 out of 5 stars!
