She accompanies Alba to her hotel room as a curious acquaintance and stays as a growing friend. In this room in Rome, the two women come to know one another intimately over the course of the night, and explore and discover themselves along the way. Only the break of day threatens to break their newly forged bond.Written by
Before the end credits there is a shot showing a satellite image of the hotel balcony being zoomed out. If you compare this image to a real satellite picture available on the internet it turns out that it is accurate but filmmakers have added the hotel to the picture. At the spot where the hotel is located in the movie there is a square in reality. 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 »

Where did you come from? How could you show up like this, without warning?
I can't believe I'm doing this.
What are you doing to me? You're scaring me, my little Russian.
Is this me? Making love to a woman? I can't recognize myself.
Your Russian sounds so beautiful.
Only for you. I'm trembling with fear too.

As I said in my title I am a gay guy and thought this movie was just beautiful ! So for all the people who said it was only for lesbians and straight guys - it's not. It goes back to the old adage that love is love no matter what.
It has a lovely atmosphere and being mainly filmed in a hotel room gave it a surrealism and a closeness and an intimacy. Constantly shadowy and the use of autumnal hues added to that.
The sex is warm and intimate and is perfectly in context and not over the top or voyeuristic.
So sit back and lose yourself in two women's discovery of their sensuality and getting to know more and more about one another till you develop an empathy for them.
Well written and beautifully acted, 7 out of 10
I Enjoyed this film immensely.
