"Don't Move/Non ti muovere" wins Italy's script prize

In the continuing pre-Oscar fever, director Gianni Amelio won Italy's Nastro d'Azzuro (blue band) award for his moving drama "The House Keys". Best screenplay award went to Sergio Castellito and Margaret Mazzantini for "Don't Move/Non ti muovere", a Cannes 2004 favourite.

I'm afraid it's the "Nastro d'argento" (silver band) award.

Thanks Anon,

Nastro d'Azurro is, I think, an Italian lager. A very Freudian slip, I'd say.
