The provocative, black-haired, Italian-born Giada Colagrande began experimenting in film early on by directing art videos. She directed the shorts Carnival (1997) and Fetus 4 Brings Death (1998). She wrote, directed, and starred in her first feature-length film, Aprimi il cuore (2002), which translates to Open My Heart, and tells the story of hooker Natalie Cristiani and her domineering relationship with her sister, played by Giada. Their relationship is also very sexual and very skinful, including some nice full frontal from the director, something Mr. Skin would never care to see from, say, Alfred Hitchcock. But I’ll hitch my cock to this anytime.
