Trivia

When Alba tells Dasha that her two-wheeled vehicle is called the "Aspasia," Dasha smiles and says she knows after whom it was named. Aspasia was the lover (and maybe wife) of Pericles, the leader during Athen's Golden Age in the Fifth Century B.C. when the arts flourished and the Parthenon was built. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[looking at herself in the bathroom mirror]
Natasha: [in Russian; subtitled] I'm sorry, Vadim, but I can never tell you about this. I know you have many secrets about where you've been and the many women you've been with. Now, I have a secret. But it's much further away then yours. I have now been with a woman. I know I'm not lesbian. I know I'm not attracted to other women. Why am I attracted to this one? I am so confused. You'll always have that... my reflection. This... it's mine alone.

You either get it or you miss the point
5 February 2011 | by paulsmithsonSee all my reviews

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.
