‘Criminale’ steals 10 Silver Ribbon noms

Gangster pic, Oscar entry 'Cuore' up for awards

With 10 nominations, Michele Placido’s “Romanzo Criminale” (Criminal Novel) is the top contender for Italy’s Nastri D’Argento (Silver Ribbons), the country’s oldest film nods.

The Rome-set gangster epic, produced by Cattleya in collaboration with Warner Bros. Pictures, will be duking it out with Cristina Comencini’s “La Bestia nel Cuore” (Don’t Tell), Italy’s Oscar entry, and with Alessandro D’Alatri’s social drama “La Febbre” (The Fever), which garnered eight noms each.

All three pics are contenders in the director and screenplay categories.

Winners of the Silver Ribbons, voted by Italy’s national film journalists’ union SNGCI, will be announced in Rome in early February on a date to be decided.
