IMDB

Room in Rome, is Spanish director Julio Medem's first English language film and is based on the Chilean film En la Cama by Matías Bize.  It is a film with a simple story, beautifully shot, and starring two stunning actresses who are naked for most of the running time.  

Medem's ability to create and convey the atmosphere of the film is what makes this one so interesting and captivating to watch.  The voyeuristic cinematography, and impressive use of light and shadow, the wonderful soundtrack, and the feeling that the hotel room itself is an important character.  All of this comes together to depict one of the most intimate, romantic, sensual, and honest films of the year.

Yeah it was tricky keeping this post PG. 

I'm looking forward to seeing her in the latest Almodovar film, it looks intense.

You did well to get that many screenshots without showing any nudity! Decent, if unspectacular film, I thought, with a naggingly annoying theme song. I think Anaya's very watchable in most anything, though.

I'm guessing many see this film for the wrong reasons. It certainly has a provocative poster. But it seems like a fascinating story nonetheless - it's nice to see a film that takes two young, good-looking actresses and steers clear of conventional, derivative boy meets girl romance. Girl meets girl is so much more interesting. I'll be checking this out.

I think I've seen a movie with a similar plot.... oh wait, it was probably a porno

I lol'd at your matter-of-fact summation of their nakedness.

Ah, yes, this is the kind of thing I want. If only more films were made like this. :)
