from Film Forum, 05/13/04

In the Italian coming-of-age thriller I'm Not Scared, a ten year-old boy stumbles onto a bewildering discovery that transforms his view of the world and forces him to a life-changing decision

Michael Elliott (Movie Parables) says, "Award winning director Gabriele Salvatores lets this story unfold as slowly and lazily as a summer day in a rural village in southern Italy. He successfully blends the structure of a coming of age tale with the elements of mystery and suspense. I'm Not Scared depicts that very odd time when we first become aware that we have a choice to make and it may be quite different from the choice our parents have made."

Michael Leary (Matthews House Project) writes, "I'm Not Scared is a unique hybrid of suspense thriller and introspective childhood drama. Worth seeing for its cinematography alone, [the movie] is a lush portrait of a few very simple truths."
