Italian movie – Io non ho paura

Io non ho paura, or I’m not scared in English, is the 2003 film adaptation of a book by Niccolo Ammaniti. It tells the story of nine-year-old Michele, a young boy growing up in an isolated village in southern Italy. During the summer he goes exploring with his gang of friends in the cornfields surrounding his village. There, he discovers a terrifying secret which turns out to be much closer to home than he had previously thought… I’m not scared is definitely a film worth seeing, and despite the fact that non- Italian speakers have to watch it with subtitles, it still manages to be full of suspense and very touching. The book is also very good, and probably worth reading before you watch the film.

Here’s the trailer:
