Italos savor dolce bow

Celebs not 'Scared' off by pic preem

NEW YORK — The invite described it aptly: an Italian film, hosted by Italians, with an Italian dinner.

Miramax’s unspooling of Gabriele Salvatores‘ “I’m Not Scared” at the Lighthouse on March 31 was chock-a-block with native speakers, rendering it unnecessary for Salvatores to apologize for his “airport English” (which happened to be perfectly good).

Film blurs the line between coming-of-age drama and thriller. “There is something scary about the loss of innocence,” he said. “Making this movie, I understood something about what it is to be a father. Being a father or a director — it’s a similar relationship.”

Among those tucking into supper at Le Cirque: pic’s producer Maurizio Totti, Italian UN Ambassador Aldo Montovani, Buck Henry, Tom McCarthy, Regis Philbin and Harvey Weinstein.
