Rome, May 10 - Daniele Vicari's hard-hitting tale of
police brutality at the Genoa 2001 G8 summit, 'Diaz', and
'Cinema Paradiso' Oscar winner Giuseppe Tornatore's romantic
drama 'La Migliore Offerta' (The Best Offer) starring Geoffrey
Rush, Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland are leading this year's
hunt for Italy's Oscars, the David di Donatello awards.
Both have 13 nominations ahead of the June 14 ceremony,
organisers said Friday.
Diaz, Don't Clean Up This Blood', a re-enactment of the
final days of the Genoa summit when an horrific police raid on a
school hosting peaceful protesters stained Italy's image, was
one of last year's most acclaimed Italian films.
It placed second for an audience award at the Berlin Film
Festival.
La Migliore Offerta, the story of an eccentric art
auctioneer and his obsession with an heiress and collector, also
featuring a score by Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone, was
released earlier this year to ecstatic Italian press reviews.
Roberto Ando's 'Viva la Liberta' (Long Live Freedom),
starring Toni Servillo as the depressed leader of an Italian
opposition party, got 12 nods.
'Mediterraneo' Oscar winner Gabriel Salvatores' 'Educazione
Siberiana' (Siberian Education), a tale of the early years of a
future Russian soldier, and Cannes-feted Gomorra director Matteo
Garrone's 'Reality', a comedy about a Neapolitan fishmonger
hoping to take part in Big Brother, garnered 11 nominations
each.
Italian cinema legend Bernardo Bertolucci, just named head
of the Venice Film Festival, received six nominations for 'Io e
Te' (Me and You), the story of an introverted teenager who tells
his parents he is going on a ski trip but instead spends his
time alone in a basement.
It is the third in a trilogy by the Last Emperor and Last
Tango in Paris director exploring malaise among the Italian
bourgeoisie.
'Viaggio da Sola' (I'm Travelling On My Own), the fourth
film by Italian cinema great Ugo Tognazzi's daughter Maria Sole
Tognazzi starring Margherita Buy as a woman who flees her
marriage with Stefano Occorsi, obtained five nominations.
