lo non ho paura (I'm not scared) - gabriele salvatores (2003)

A beautifully shot Italian film, Io Non Ho Paura (I'm not scared) has a nine year old boy finding another boy in a hole, out in the countryside. He befriends him and brings him food, and discovers his own father (and his fathers friends) had kidnapped him and are holding him to ransom. That's about the gist of it. As l said before, the sweeping shots are beautifully done, but there is not that much tension, apart from the odd moments. The story itself could have been realised better, but you certainly can't fault the look.
