First Trailer for Asia Argento's 'Misunderstood' Premiering in Cannes
Kicking off this week in France is the Cannes Film Festival, with films from Ryan Gosling to Tommy Lee Jones. Another film premiering in the Un Certain Regard category is Asia Argento's latest feature, titled Incompresa, or Misunderstood, a sort of semi-autobiographical story about her own childhood as the daughter of filmmaker Dario Argento and actress Daria Nicolodi. This early trailer still doesn't have English subtitles, but presents a very bold, punk look at growing up. I'm down to see it, and hope it's as good as this looks. It's said to have "nuances of the cinema of Sophia Coppola and Paolo Sorrentino." Take a look below.
Here's the first trailer for Asia Argento's Incompresa, or Misunderstood, found via The Film Stage:
Incompresa, also known as Misunderstood in English, is co-written and directed by Italian actress Asia Argento, who has directed a few films previously including The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things and Scarlet Diva. Her latest feature is loosely inspired by her childhood as the daughter of the genre maestro Dario Argento and actress Daria Nicolodi, who collaborated on classics such as Suspiria and Inferno before going their separate ways. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays the lead Italian role, based loosely on Nicolodi. The film will play in Cannes before opening in Italy in June this summer. Here's the first poster for the film:
Asia Argento's Incompresa will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard. Curious?
