I seem to have fallen out of the habit of watching a film in the evenings. I tend to read books or watch programmes these days. The last film I watched was Hanna, which is action-packed and good-looking but somehow lacking substance.
Tonight I watched I’m Not Scared, which was most absorbing and very touching. Set in rural southern Italy in the 70s, it is a thriller showcasing the bravery and loyalty of a ten year old boy. As well as the dreamy scenery the cameras captured lots of fantastic wildlife: a baby hedgehog, several owls, a frog and a snake to name but a few. The child actors were completely believable. I cried at the end. A splendid way to spend a Friday night in.
