I SAW A MOVIE AT THE ITALIAN FILM FESTIVAL BACK IN 2000. THE MOVIE WAS ABOUT A YOUNG BOY WHO'S FATHER HAS TAUGHT HIM TO SPEAK A LANGUAGE TOTALLY FOREIGN TO OTHERS IN THE OUTSIDE WORLD (I BELIEVE IT WAS THE DICTIONARY WORDS SPELLED BACKWARDS). THE FATHER DIES IN THE HOME, AND THE BOY (ABOUT 10YR) VENTURES OUT ON HIS OWN FOR THE FIRST TIME. WHEN HE TRIES TO COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS, THEY THINK THE BOY IS MENTALLY HANDICAP AND HE IS SENT TO A HOSPITAL WHERE HE BEFRIENDS A NURSE WHO TRIES TO FIGURE OUT WHAT LANGUAGE HE IS USING. THIS IS AN ITALIAN FILM (NOT JODIE FOSTER'S "NELL") ANY HELP IN THE NAME OF THIS MOVE WOULD BE APPRECIATED
