Love Takes a Room (2021) Movie reviewOR movie run by Rodrigo Cortéswritten by David Safier, Jerzy They swear AND Rodrigo Cortés and playing Clara Rugaard, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Mark Ryder, Valentina Belle, Jack Roth, Freya parks, Anastasia Hille, Magnus Krepper, Henry Goodman, Dalit Streett Tejeda AND Phillip Sponbiel.
IN Love takes a roomRodrigo Cortés brings to life the pains and passions of a theater group of performers in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. Love takes a room is a remarkable achievement in that it does so much with its material to create a portrait of people who fear what’s to come but find solace in performing in the moment. Clara Rugaard stars in the film in a heartfelt turn full of complex emotions. She portrays Stefcia, whom we meet at the beginning of the picture, and this deeply focused film focuses on her joys and tribulations.
Stefcia comes on stage as an escape from the real world that surrounds her. She’s starring in a silly comedy that allows her and her actors and actresses the freedom of expression that helps them deal with the impending doom that surrounds them. Mark Ryder plays the actor, Patryk, who was once romantically involved with Stefcia and has a plan to get her out of the bleak situation they currently find themselves in. Patryk has pulled strings to escape with Stefcia, but with another actor, Edmund (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), who is Stefcia’s current boyfriend. Edmund has a younger sister named Sarah (a popular Dalit Streett Tejeda).
This film focuses on the choices that have to be made in a short amount of time and how these artists’ performances on stage really come from their darkest fears. Acting in a light production, the artists find ways to cope with the unfortunate realities presented to them. When people enter the theater in the middle of the production, the actors get scared. They believe that something must be wrong. It’s a time of fear and comedy is the only way to deal with the tragedy that awaits.
A series of hysterical scenes take place on stage. The actors are having fun performing for the crowd and singing hilarious songs. They act like they’re riding in a vehicle at one point and do it in a fun way by jumping on stage and putting incredible energy into their performances, which makes the watching crowd laugh.
Clara Rugaard has so much passion and is a joy to watch in the entertaining theatrical sequences within the picture. Rugaard’s character also has to deal with more dire situations, such as when a proposal arises to make money in another way outside of the show. This scene creates a heartbreaking moment within the picture.
The characters in the play within the film all live together. There is a landlady (the lovely Anastasia Hille) who charges couples the same rent even though they all live in the same space. These scenes are humorous and the competition between Edmund and Patryk for Stefcia’s affections is built into the actual play itself. Valentina Belle plays another of the actresses in the show and Belle adds a lot of fun and sarcasm to the theatrical production within the film.
Love takes a room it is ultimately heartbreaking. The final scenes represent the final triumphant moments these actors will have together before reality sets in. These characters should make the most of them. Two of them will try to escape as well. Rodrigo Cortes’ direction will keep viewers intrigued as to how this film will unfold.
While Rugaard is the best of the talented cast, there are subtler performances that stand out. Ryder is particularly effective as his character desperately tries to escape with Stefcia. Ryder adds depth to his role as does Walsh-Peelo as the recipient of Stefcia’s love. Maybe Stefcia loves both men, but in different ways. Love can only shine to an extent as what will soon happen will change the lives of all the characters in the film forever.
This photo is an impressive achievement. It feels like it’s happening in real time and there’s a sense of urgency to the action that makes it all the more tense to watch. When Stefcia and most of her fellow performers share their joy at the film’s conclusion, it’s a triumph for the human spirit in a time of tragedy. It’s like a reminder of what makes life so precious and how every moment should be cherished because tomorrow can change everything.
Rodrigo Cortés has created a film with an excellent cast that is a powerful history lesson and an ode to the human spirit. It is an important film and deserves to be seen. Clara Rugaard is the kind of actress who has what it takes to become one of the best, and her performance here is hopefully a stepping stone to even greater things to come.
