Rialto Movie Of The Week: I'm Not Scared
RIALTO MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I'm Not Scared
Italian director Gabriele Salvatores (Mediterraneo) has created a striking account of childish innocence in a treacherous adult world. Centring on appealingly naturalistic performances from a young cast, he draws us into the childhood experience of scorching, endless summer in the country. Deftly he provides us with telling evidence no child could interpret, that the adult world is far from sunny. Without exploiting his child-in-peril scenario for horror-movie thrills, Salvatores tenderises us with apprehension as the compassionate instincts of the young protagonist carry him deeper and deeper into grown-up trouble.
