Cleveland Cultural Gardens Film Fest
La Voce Della Luna
France, Italy | 1990 | Federico Fellini
Roberto Benigni stars in Federico Fellini’s final film, the only Fellini movie never released in North America. (We will show a rare 35mm print from Europe that is temporarily in the U.S.) A hit in Italy, where it was nominated for nine David di Donatello Awards (Italy’s Oscar) and won three (including Best Actor), The Voice of the Moon is a surrealistic comedy/drama in which a former mental patient obsessed with the moon (a true lunatic) and an ex-prefect team up to traverse a cultural landscape peppered with pagans, pompous fools, beauty queens, grotesques, and other eccentrics. “A cockeyed lament on a world gone haywire, where traditions are dismissed and sensitive souls—what’s left of them—look to the moon for magic and nourishment.” –San Francisco Chronicle.
