Right at the beginning of the short film, Enzo Zelocchi as a writer has set the pace for a dramatic family oriented plot line that will find resonance with every parent and household that has witnessed death. That should cover all families across the world.
Enzo Zelocchi impresses as an actor in his own production and direction. Being barely into his late twenties, he manages to pull off the role of a troubled father in a mental turmoil with a great performance. When Hollywood actors ten years elder to Enzo Zelocchi would still want to play roles of the eternal bachelor, it is refreshing to see this young and bright man essaying a difficult role.
It is not easy to express pathos through eyes and subtle expressions. Enzo Zelocchi is perhaps that rare Hollywood actor who can manage to go overtly dramatic and the very next instant go completely numb. That may not impress a lot of movie buffs but in reality it is exactly what the director had envisioned.
My Little Princess is also a fine directing venture of Enzo Zelocchi and Charlotte Labadie (Irene) is a testimony to that. The young girl a powerhouse and has been aptly explored by Enzo donning the captain's hat. The film has gone on to grab some of the biggest awards including a gamut of honors for Enzo Zelocchi (Best Actor, Best Director, Best Writer & Screenplay, as well as the Best Family Movie).
My Little Princess had also bagged the Best Family Movie at the American International Film Festival 2010, California Film Awards 2010 and Best in Independent film Award 2010 at Official Best of Fest.
The film has been widely regarded as one of the best indie films of the year. Enzo Zelocchi as an actor and director has been phenomenally impressive with the film. The writing could have been better and possibly we would get to see a better and tighter script with his next productions.
