The actress Asia Argento and her daughter were in town last week for a world premiere.
If you had the chance to attend the rehearsal on stage, at the Lieu Unique, a place dedicated to arts, you would have heard that people on stage either spoke Italian or English. Who ? The actress Asia Argento and her daughter Anna-Lou Castoldi. They were in Nantes, western France, supporting « Shadow », an artistic creation combining music and film
This is the result of sensitive work done by two men with the charismatic Asia Argento. The latter was interested in the project and has been committed to helping the creation. While the film was shown, with an obsessive music, Asia and her daughter, who also appeared in this medium-length film, were on stage. Their live voices intertwined with the music and the images.
The actress who has worked with the biggest movie-makers has shown a real interest in this more confidential project and proves that she has a charismatic presence during the performance.
The movie has a tense atmosphere and describes a terrifying world. You cannot help thinking of the world she had described the day before when she had referred to the Weinstein scandal, revealing a list of 93 women on Twitter. Yet, in Nantes, the actress refused to comment on the affair as she came only to support « Shadow » and this was not related at all with the Hollywood affair
