Based upon the celebrated novel "La Bestia nel Cuore," "Don't Tell" is the mesmerizing story of a woman?s journey into her past and the aftermath of confronting personal demons long hidden beneath the surface of her psyche. At the heart of the film is Sabina (Giovanna Mezzogiorno), a beautiful young woman who seemingly has it all -- a supportive and loving boyfriend, a comfortable lifestyle, and a promising future. But when Sabina learns she is pregnant, a normally celebratory occasion is clouded by a succession of haunting nightmares, strange memories, and personal insecurities that send Sabina?s world spiraling out of control. While shunning the affections of her boyfriend Franco (Alessio Boni), Sabina flees to America where she seeks comfort from her brother Daniele (Luigi Lo Cascio) and his family. In the arms of her loved ones, Sabina uncovers truths so dark and disturbing that she begins to question her own instincts about life, love, and her future happiness, leading to an intense psychological climax that finds Sabina at a crossroads of redemption or destruction. Directed and co-written by Cristina Comencini, "Don't Tell" is adapted from her bestselling novel "La Bestia Nel Cuore." The film stars Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Alessio Boni, Stefania Rocca, Angela Finocchiaro, Giuseppe Battiston and Luigi Lo Cascio.

For as long as humanity has existed, there have been "Others" among us; Witches, Vampires and Shape-Shifters who are soldiers in the eternal war between Light and Dark. Light Others protect mankind from Dark Others, who plaque and torture humans. Ancient prophecy foretells that one day the Great One will arrive who can end the threat of an apocalyptic battle between Light and Dark Others. That day has come, and the Great One, once he or she is identified, must choose whether to destroy the light within or battle the surrounding darkness. This choice will reveal mankind's destiny. Somewhere on the streets of Moscow, the "Great One" wanders, oblivious to his or her powers. "Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor)" is the first installment of a trilogy based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko entitled Night Watch, Day Watch and Dusk Watch. The film is the official Russian contender for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2005 Academy Awards.
