Five different languages are spoken in the movie; English, Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Basque. English is the primarily language spoken by the two lead characters, Elena and Natasha, to each other. Elena talks to herself in her native Spanish, and Natasha talks to herself in her native Russian. Natasha speaks fluent Italian (to the hotel staff). Except for Basque (one line is spoken by Elena), Natasha is shown to speak fluent English, Russian, and Italian and seems to understand Spanish while Elena is speaking it to her on occasion (despite that Natasha doesn't have a single phrase of Spanish in the movie), but it never becomes clear whether Natasha can speak Spanish too.

In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom. See more »
Natasha, never before, in my whole life, I've known a love like this. Not this way. And it can't be for nothing.

The film, first of all, has a superb music. Then it is filmed in a unique manner, intimate, full of intensity, the camera penetrates slowly into the core of the soul of the two female characters, two young women who fall in love with each other during a night in a hotel room in Rome. The two actresses, Elena Anaya and Natasha Yarovenko, shows not only their physical beauty, but a small part of the beauty of the human soul. It's a love story, very sensitive, it is not soft-porn. The most intense moment of the film is when Alba and Natacha are singing the Italian song "Volare" in the bathroom. Although all the action takes place only in that hotel room, the movie is not boring at all, can be seen with pleasure, and 2nd and 3rd time.
