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.
QUELET 18:16 18 Oct 2006 What is that your baptism?

la 19:07 18 Oct 2006 who is on you wall?I think I can recognise Beatrice Dalle,and I think that is Simone Simon but I can't make out the others.Who are your favorite actors?
van 19:21 18 Oct 2006 i lke the colour changing lights in the other room. cool. um, i think she is getting sick of these video diaries, and they are now just a burdon?
la 19:24 18 Oct 2006 Ah I wondered why the lighting levels were going up and down in the mobile phone film.It is the lights in the other room.
SheSmokesDiamonds 20:22 18 Oct 2006 I love Simone Simon, a very good actress with a sad and melancholic look.. do you like "Cat people" and "The curse of cat people"? I find them very poetic, Irina is such beautiful and hurt and lonely... she would like to be accepted, but she scares people (and animals ;-)).. something inside her does it.. her nature, her curse.. sometimes I feel very close to that character, do you?
Salwa 23:27 18 Oct 2006 she's having a bath... leave the woman alone! you can never film yourself and be unconsious of it, so its natural for an entertainer to want to make the imagery more visual by doing something.. Asia just does everything and anything she wants and its the beauty of her spirit and a credit to her personality that she manages to make it all very compelling..its not like we're watching big brother, but in a way we are... I keep feeling the urge to grab a robe and cover her up from prying eyes - sometimes when you share yourself to the "ether" you're showing people you shouldn't which disturbs me on asia's behalf, she seems so fragile and far from home at the moment.
Se'an O'Brien 11:34 21 Oct 2006 I'll say again that this is the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life. Oh, and that person needs to stop implying that she's a witch. If she was a witch, she would have floated on the top of the bathwater. Mystery solved.
Kurt 01:20 15 Nov 2006 Thats hilarious! floating on top of water.... LOL
