In Dario Argento's 1993 American film Trauma, Asia Argento stars as Aura, a troubled and anorexic young girl who's just escaped from the Farraday Clinic. And she's apparently thinking about jumping off a bridge! That's when a man driving along in his SUV, played by the wild-eyed Christopher Rydell, spots her and immediately runs to her aid. He notices that the poor, sixteen year old, runaway girl is in some sort of trouble, so he takes her in as his own (which is always a great idea).
|"Nothing... I was just admiring your beautiful bracelet."|
After grilling her for info and buying her lunch, she is spotted by two 'escapee collectors' from the clinic and chows down on a grilled cheese sandwich (with attitude), before running to the bathroom to immediately puke it back up, and not to mention get the hell out of there (with her concerned new buddy's wallet).
|She does a lot of screaming in this movie.|
|...and crying while she touches her face.|
Later, back at her new friend's apartment, Aura gets herself a bit more comfortable...
|What a weird ass looking bra.|
...while he conveniently walks by. And just in time too. Daw yeahz.
Later, after being turned in by her new friend's jealous bitch of a fuck-buddy, Aura is force fed a bit of mind-opening
drugs berries from her doctor so she can remember the horrible events of the previous night's murders! She begins to seriously trip out for a while... seeing a floating woman in white above the fire, and then she ponders the insides of a VHS cassette.
|In fact, she touches her face throughout nearly all of the film and makes orgasmic faces 80% of the time.|
|An honest reaction to seeing that VHS ripped apart.|
She of course starts to relive the moments after the horrific beheading murder of her parents, where she stands in the rain and screams and screams and screams some more.
There are quite a few people out there that think it's really weird for Dario to have his daughter get naked in the first film he's directed her in (or in any film he's directed her in as well). I don't really have too much of an opinion on that other than I'm sure glad he did it, because wow-za! And I'm pretty sure she didn't mind anways, because for Asia Argento, getting nude or topless is just one of those things that she just constantly does. Artfully speaking.
