Caught the Italian film "Don't Tell," nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year. This means I've completed the list and have seen every film nominated for a Oscar for 2005.
"Don't Tell" is a melodrama about an adult sister and brother overcoming a traumatic childhood. Being Italian, it's very dramatic -- with lots of emotions on display -- crying, yelling, passing out, etc. A couple of times women started screaming so suddenly I was startled and screamed right back at them.
It's a difficult story to sit through -- but it's a very, very good film.
