Room in Rome (Habitación en Roma) adult only trailer
I have to admit that I looked into Room in Rome (Habitación en Roma) purely over the not safe for work poster and the blurb of the film about two women in a hotel room. The poster had been edited because it was supposedly too rude for us to see, which turned out to be complete rubbish, however the trailer certainly is very explicit and carries an age verification.
However looking into the film and the writer/director behind it, there seems to be a lot less sex and a lot more film-making behind it, so it struck me as curious as to why the trailer is selling it purely on a sexual level.
Anaya has previously been seen in another Medem film, Lucía y el sexo (Sex and Lucia), as well as Talk to Her (Hable con ella), Don't Tempt Me (Sin noticias de Dios), Van Helsing and Mesrine: Part 1 - Death Instinct (L'instinct de mort) (Filmstalker review), a host of star studded films.
Yarovenko, on the other hand, doesn't have a lot of roles to her name, although Diary of a Sex Addict (Diario de una ninfómana) does stick out.
It's Medem's other films that make for interesting reading, she's had a fair mix of films and quite a list of talent in them too, and I mean acting talent.
All of this makes me think of something much more than the trailer suggests. Of course the trailer could be the first to grab our attention and the actual story will out, but so far it looks like a soft-core romp, from purely the trailer that is. To be fair the visible green screen shot in the middle does suggest that maybe the trailer isn't the complete one.
Here's the age restricted, and for adults only, trailer which comes through JoBlo.
Seriously, what do you think? Considering Medem's career there has to be more than the trailer suggests? Currently I would feel more than awkward going in to see this film by myself, or even with company.
