Room in Rome (Spanish: Habitación en Roma) is a 2010 Spanish erotic romance film, featuring relations of two young women (Alba and Natasha) in a hotel room in Rome. The plot is loosely based on another film, En la cama (In Bed). Room in Rome was Julio Medem’s first English language film.
Alba (Elena Anaya) seduces a stranger Natasha (Natasha Yarovenko) to her hotel room (the details of how they meet in a club are left vague) in what seems merely a harmless sexual adventure crowning their last night in Rome. Natasha is at first quite reluctant insisting she's straight, but Alba appears to know her way around that hesitance. It is clear that Alba has done this before.
However, through stories, memories and connection with artworks in the room, the two connect deeply, descending more and more into the depths of truth, trust, and ultimately love. The lovers eventually agree to part ways, returning to their previous lives in Russia and Spain. The ending of the film remains ambiguous about their parting.
The place where the hotel in the movie is located is an empty square called Piazzetta di San Simeone, the same square that is used in the opening and closing shots of the film.
