The nominations for David di Donatello 2011 (and winners)

by Marianne Wi

I am unimpressed and cannot possibly see how Noi Credevamo, We Believed could receive 13 nominations, how I ask is it possible ? I shall have to have words in the oracles ear like, this is a very confusing side of  Cinema Italiano, I blame drugs and alcohol for such odd choices. As for Marco Bellocchio being up for Best Director with Sorelle mai, Sisters Mai is just pure “Silliness” it was a terrible production.

I am very pleased to see Giuseppe Battiston in La passione, The Passion up for best supporting actor, he was brilliant and should win hands down. I shall update you in another blog with a list of much better films although it will alter nothing, it might help me solve the puzzle that is Noi Credevamo, We Believed and its popularity with the David di Donatello organisers.
