Non ti muovere.
i'm a fan of foreign films, and this one is a new favourite. (and not just because it has my girlfriend Penelope Cruz in it, or it's an Italian film)
The director of the film is also the main actor and his wife wrote the novel. It's beautiful. tragic. dark. tender. with amazing performances. amazing.
it's the kind of movie that after you watch it, it stays with you and you sit there thinking about it. the very next day i ordered the novel by Margaret Mazzantini.
here's a piece of an interview from Penelope Cruz, asking her how the film changed her life:
"I found that what happened to me when I read “Catcher in the Rye,” I was in New York by myself, and I bought the book and I couldn't stop reading it. I felt that it opened a door to something and I felt the same way with this book. That only happens once in a while. You find some material that for some reason connects with you in a different way, and it happened with this book. I was on a plane and I couldn't stop crying. I was alone and so I had to hide myself behind the book. I was making a lot of noise. They were like, “Are you okay?” And for me, when I find material that can make me feel so much, I feel so privileged that they thought of me for this. "
