Although I only sort-of-liked Babel, more and more Adriana Barazza is the supporting actress I have been most impressed with this year.
There are many unrealistic characteristics to her character, but her compelling portrayl of the accidentally-bad nanny is very compelling.
There's something to be said about a character who although completly flawed (as a result of the screenplay) who ends up being totally believable as a result of her acting.
