This girl is on fire.
Tanti auguri Aria Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento, Asia Argento, as we know you. Daughter of Dario Argento, the Horror/Giallo king, Asia is her own girl, acting, singing, modeling and now, directing, and though growing up with her father’s slasher scripts as bedtime stories and acting in them at a young age may not have been ideal, she’s seems to have got it all in perspective now.
Her award-winning film InCompresa (Misunderstood) was selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and it will open in the USA next week, September 26. Misunderstood stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, is the story of a nine-year-old misfit, and is no doubt an attempt to portray her own “misunderstood” youth.
