Gabriele Salvatores' I'm Not Scared, an unusual thriller set in a small Italian town in 1979, has an equally unique score composed and conducted by Ezio Bosso and performed by the Turin String Quartet. The score's unofficial title, "14 Danze per Bambini Intorno a un Buco" (14 Dances for Children Around a Hole), clues the listener in to Bosso's approach and how his music relates to the film, which tells the story of a boy who discovers how the adults in his town -- including his parents -- are keeping another little boy captive in a hole underneath an abandoned house on the outskirts of town. Bosso's score consists of 14 "dances" -- full-fledged pieces for the quartet -- and short connecting pieces that tie the dances together. The dances, such as "Rumba Towards the Hole," "On Thoughts," and "On Fear," capture the beauty and power of string quartet music at its finest; Bosso's melodies are economical but potent, especially in the darker dances like "On the Hole" and "On Thunder." The sense of space and tension created by pieces like "On the Tree" and "Duet" is palpable despite, or more likely because of, the deceptive simplicity of Bosso's style. The score's smaller pieces are only slightly less developed, and in the case of tracks like "Michele, You Need to Leave," "The Hole," and "There Were Two Brothers," they rival the dances' impact. Not only is the score's intensity and simplicity remarkable in its own right and a perfect complement to the film's story and visuals, I'm Not Scared is one of those rare pieces of film music that, just by listening to the score, makes you want to see the film for which it was written. ~ Heather Phares
