The Voice of the Moon
La voce della luna
Roberto Benigni and Paolo Villaggio star in Fellini’s elegiac, dream-like swansong.
Dir Federico Fellini
With Roberto Benigni, Paolo Villaggio, Nadia Ottaviani, Marisa Tomasi
Loosely adapted from a novel by Ermanno Cavazzoni, Fellini’s final film is a typically episodic narrative, following the wanderings of Ivo (Benigni), a wide-eyed young man who’s released from a psychiatric hospital. The film’s many unmistakably Fellinian set-pieces include a comically overheated love scene, a dazzling nightclub sequence set to the music of Michael Jackson and a beautiful, Georges Méliès-inspired finale.
