Written by Noce himself, alongside Enrico Audenino, Padre nostro is based on a true story: that of two young boys, Valerio and Christian, and the summer in which they make a terrible discovery - the brutality of adults - but also a wonderful one: the power of friendship. Also starring in the cast are Barbara Ronchi and the ever so young Mattia Garaci and Francesco Gheghi (recently seen in My Brother Chases Dinosaurs [+see also:
