Since there aren't any reviews here, I'll write this for those who are curious because I know I was curious. The episodes take place in various suites and each episode is a short 15-20 minutes. The only reason anyone would probably watch this though, is if they like the starring actors. So you you have some free time, go for it. The episode is mainly a narrative by the male lead and the 3/4 females have very minimal lines

Most episodes do show plenty of skin, narimiya hiroki and mukai osamu's in particular, and some have loads of kissing and moderate/silent love scenes. Nothing that's explicit, just like top halves of bodies and kissing is all.

I watched all of them, and I thought that Hiroki's was the most interesting (though I am a little biased) and Mukai's next, then Jun's. They were all moderately engaging, but I do think "Room Service" with the actor whose's name I don't know was absolutely boring though. This one was absent of those awesome shirtless scenes, but it wasn't why is was boring, I just thought the story was longer than the rest and stretched out so I got very bored.

But if anything, watch it you like the actors and wanna see them shirtless!

Sweet Room is pure man candy, and for that reason I loved it! LOL
Narimiya Hiroki and Kaname Jun without their shirts on, getting their love mojo on ... a vision!

Anyway, getting to the actual review, this is an anthology film consisting of 4 shorts which explore the theme of romantic love. Each film looks at different types of love: unrequited love, first love, forbidden love, love at first sight, framed by different circumstances.

I'll comment individually on each:

LAST LOVE:
Narimiya Hiroki was pretty gorgeous here, and boy can the man kiss. His love story was interesting. It left me wanting to know more about his relationship with his woman leading up to the Sweet Room. (7/10)

BIRTHDAY:
My favourite of the four. Romantic, sweet, it depicts, in my opinion, love in its purest form. (8/10)

TRIANGLE:
Perhaps my least favourite of the four. The dramaturgy was a bit off. The story felt too big for a short format, and so it lost some of its impact as a result. I was left with a feeling of ... huh? at the end. That's never a good thing. (5/10)

ROOM SERVICE:
Started off a bit slow and for well over half of it I was pretty sure I didn't like it, but turned out that I did. The ending was great. I loved the cinematography too, especially those shots of our male lead in the hallway. (6/10)

Overall, this did not leave as big an impression on me as it's Korean equivalent Five Senses of Eros, but I still liked it. If you're in the mood for romance, and not the watered down kind you see in your average drama, I think you'll enjoy this. Plus you get to see some pretty fine looking Japanese men in compromising situations. What's not to like? Throw in the Korean version while you're at it too. Eros explores the erotic whilst Sweet Room is more romantic, the perfect balance. Enjoy!
