User 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.
