Today, June 20, Abel Ferrara’s film Go Go Tales will be released, with two Italian actresses in the cast: Asia Argento and Stefania Rocca. The film features
Ferrara tells the story of Ray Ruby’s Paradise, a strip club…but that’s not all. The film was much talked about at Cannes in 2007, for the scene in which Asia Argento kisses a dog. The actress has recently said: “I wish I had never done it. My scene was constructed and that’s all that’s been talked about.”
Stefania Rocca however, has some good memories of the set, even when she did a lap dance although she was pregnant at the time:
It was on that set that I realised I was pregnant with my son. I didn’t say anything, and I didn’t want to say anything at the Cannes festival where the film was presented. I wanted to protect myself from undesirable publicity and also because Bianca Balti was already pregnant and it seemed out-of-step to let people know that two dancers from an infamous club were both about to become mothers.
It’s great to see that Italian actresses are still taking their craft overseas and being ambassadors for Italy. The film looks quite interesting so see below for an extensive photo gallery.
