Anna Battista is a young, popular, 24-year-old Italian-born International film actress who engages herself on a hectic and self-destructive spree which takes her across Europe and to America to shed her "boy-toy" image to become an "artist" in order to write and direct herself in a semi-biography movie of herself titled "Scarlet Diva." After working in Rome, and winning a presigious film award in Milan, Anna travels to Paris to save her best friend from an abusive relationship, then avoids sleazy film producers in Los Angeles, meets and falls in love with a rock star who abandons her, finds out later that she's pregnant, and begins using drugs to numb her pain at this predictament she's gotten herself into.Written by
Not quite great, but not bad either, although some parts are for laughs
I finally got to watch this film of dvd, it's one of the newer Italian exploitation flicks that ran rampant in the 70's. Although the other reviews said it's not quite porn, part of it is with a couple of nude scenes, and some harsh language and toilet humor to boot.
Asia Argento will probably not be called a great directors, some of her mistakes are shown are here, however, the interesting thing about the flick is that it's partially based on her biography and life.
Dont rent the crappy vhs version, get the dvd version instead which comes with a couple of bonus items.
