Io Non Ho Paura

This past weekend I watched the Italian film by director Gabriele Salvatores, Io Non Ho Paura or I'm not Scared.  I actually started reading the book by Niccolo Ammaniti when I was in Italy, but left it in my apartment in the confusion of moving.  It's won endless awards and been translated in many languages for good reason.  Ammaniti wrote the screenplay which I think made this book transition into film perfect.  It will fill you with suspense and also melt your heart, which is why I won't tell you any of the plot line...I'll leave it for you to find out.  But with all that and the cinematography, scenery, amazing acting and soundtrack, I think this is one of my new favorite Italian films, right next to Nights of Cabiria.
