Argento Left In Tears By Critical Reaction To Movie

ASIA ARGENTO was left "heartbroken" while publicising THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL in France last year (04), because the movie received such appalling reviews.

Argento, who was at this year's (05) French industry event promoting GUS VAN ZANT film LAST DAYS, burst into tears when mainstream critics savaged director JT LEROY's drama.

But, the Italian beauty - daughter of legendary filmmaker DARIO ARGENTO - was comforted when she noticed it was mainly American writers who disliked the film.

She recalls, "It wasn't a good experience. I was heartbroken.

"But it was only the Americans, the puritans, that wrote s**t about it. It was only VARIETY and the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.

"I had to keep telling myself, 'These are the kind of people that like SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE.' That's not what I'm about at all."
