David di Donatello Awards 2011. The Winners Are……

by Marianne Wi

The Winners Are :

Best Film  Noi Credevamo, We Believed directed by Mario Martone (how is it possible that this was the best film to come out of Italy in 2010? There are too much politics in todays Italian film industry)

Best Director went to Daniele Luchetti for La nostra vita, Our Life (well deserved)

Best First time Director Rocco Papaleo for Basilicata coast to coast (20 cigarettes was much superior)

Best Screenplay Giancarlo de Cataldo and Mario Martone for Noi Credevamo, We Once Believed (shaking my head)

Best Producer Cladio Bonivento, Tilde Corsi and Gianni Romoli 20 cigarettes (well deserved)

Best Actress Paola Cortellesi for her role in Nessuno mi puo giudicare, No one can judge me

Best Actor  Elio Germani for his role in La nostra vita, Our Life (Germano is improving every year, a really accomplished actor)

Best Supporting Actress  Valentina Lodovini for Bienvenuti al sud, Welcome to the south (whatever)

Best Supporting Actor for his role as Ramiro in La Passione, The Passion Giuseppe Battiston (My favorite actor, sure to win next years too with his fabulous portrayal of Il professore, The Professor in Notizie degli scavi, News of the Excavations)
