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 »
Natasha, never before, in my whole life, I've known a love like this. Not this way. And it can't be for nothing.

Reading the reviews that other people have written it seems that people either 'get' this movie or they don't.
Some people just seem to see it as a pseudo-erotic softcore film starring a couple of naked chicks, whereas other people see it as a beautiful piece of cinematography.
If you're amongst the latter, cool, if you're the former you might be best sticking to Saw IV and the like :-) Room in Rome is a well thought-out, cleverly scripted, and beautifully shot film. Yes, it is highly erotic, but it is never seedy or smutty. Yes, it is romantic, but it is never sickly or sweet.
If you enjoy European cinema then you're probably going to love this film. If you don't then you're probably best giving it a miss.
