Room in Rome – film review


One of the other films that I watched last weekend, which doesn’t quite count as ‘foreign’ (it’s predominantly in English), despite starring Spanish actress Elena Anaya and Ukrainian actress Natasha Yarovenko, was Room in Rome.

Anaya is amazingly talented (I loved La piel que habito), which is what attracted me to the film. It has a similar plot to En la cama, except that it involves two women and is far more psychologically interesting. It had moments of hilarious surrealism, utter tenderness, and tackles questions of sexual violence while also being eminently sexy. The only slightly false note, for me, is the heavily symbolic decorations in the titular room. All in all, however, I would absolutely recommend it!
