Movie Info

Set in Rome in 1984, a young girl, Aria (Giulia Salerno) is the victim of her parents' divorce in this dramatic but darkly humorous film from director Asia Argento. Her parents Charlotte Gainsbourg and Gabriel Garko relentlessly quarrel and are selfishly too involved with their own lives to pay attention to the little girl. School is no better for Aria because although she is doing well academically, she is teased and considered a misfit by her peers. Aria, who feelings isolated, finds comfort in her best friend, Angelica and a black stray cat named Dac. Cast includes Olimpia Carlisi, Anna Lou Castoldi and Alice Pea.
