|Alba and Natasha.|
Directed by Julio Medem, Spanish writer and director who was responsible for The Red Squirrel (1993), Room in Rome (2010) is his first English language film. The film stars Spanish actress Elena Anaya (Talk to Her 2002, Van Heising 2004, Mesrine 2008 Hierro 2009) as Alba and was released straight to DVD by Optimum because the company had problems categorising and marketing this very arty movie. Bathed in a constant brown sepia type hue, nearly all of the film is spent in the hotel room with our two protagonists naked most of the time. As attractive as this sounds it really is a case of style over substance, the whole thing is a touch portentous and if it’s an erotic thrill your looking for this film does not fit the bill.
