Korial's rating of the film Scarlet Diva

An opera of transition, healing, where pain mixes with anger, rebellion, dizziness. Also, a sensual, really sexy, soundtrack and a refreshing direction. Asia Argento here is tremendously sincere, funny, and provocative. She is exposing her being helpless, confused and deluded. It is an intimate, personal, portrait of human beings' tendency to self-destruction and hope for change.
