An almost perfect release.

Fellini's heavily improvised fable, very loosely based on Ermanno Cavazzoni's book, was financed on a treatment and Fellini defiantly refused to write a screenplay. Detractors, some close to Fellini, claimed this method hurt the film.

THE VOICE OF THE MOON is extraordinary in many ways. Maybe one of the few films I've seen deal with mental illness on a realistic scale, despite the largeness of the production and the maestro's usual excess. Fellini's people, the ones who hear the voice of the moon (always associated with madness) are treated with surprising respect and dignity. Instead, Fellini takes aim at the media, politicians, the church and 'healthy' members of society.

The plot - and, admittedly, it's a thin plot - constantly shifts between the present, memory and condition. It's akin to the dream sequences of 8 1/2 mixed with vignettes from AMARCORD. Part love story, part quest for personal meaning in life, the big questions are all here. And Fellini, being the astute Jungian, litters the film with visual archetypes.

Now, the only problem with this new Arrow release? The subtitles. Many grammatical errors and a poor translation, rendering segments borderline incomprehensible.

A must for Fellini fans but not an easy watch

I found this an odd film, a bit ‘What was that all about?’. I watched it as part of a course on Italian Film so pleased to watch it but maybe a bit too ‘Fellini’ For me.
