Actress and director Asia Argento created this mesmerising series of film shorts exclusively for SHOWstudio over the course of October 2006. The vignettes, drawing on an ad-hoc 'video diary' aesthetic but in fact painstakingly directed, intertwine reality with fantasy thanks to a script devised by Emma Forrest that confuses fiction with reality.
ampersand 19:06 20 Oct 2006 I don't know anyone who really knows who they are. I discover new things about myself all the time, especially when I think I've got myself pretty well figured out. Evolution of the personality is essential to growth, but I think the key is to remain fluid and not restrict oneself to any definition. In a total fan moment: I hope you're going to direct another film soon. Scarlet Diva and The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things were amazing.

passenger 14:52 21 Oct 2006 The problem with Scarlett Diva is that it never escapes literalness and you didnt find a way to trasform what was in your head into something poetic. But when the film is watched with your commentary turned on something else happens. The film becomes very interesting and inches nearer to poetry. This project here is much more interesting than Scarlett Diva
Lie 22:09 21 Oct 2006 faking it is a bizarr thing. just because you are not the role you are playing does not mean you are not that role inside. it just means you have been given an oppertunity to be anouther part of you that no one knows.
