Science Fiction from Italy
15 September 2007 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

"Luci Lontane" is a simple Italian science fiction movie with a really good cast. Tomas Milian (Traffic, Amistad, etc) was very popular in Italy for different roles but here he does a great work playing a man who loses the wife. But his son keeps on seeing the mother... Plot will quickly turn in a simple science fiction story. Not bad also Laura Morante (La Stanza Del Figlio). Branduardi's soundtrack is melancholic and it gives some "maturity" to the movie. The only special effects for this movie are simple blue laser lights. Italians science fictions movies,as we know, were quite poor. My vote is 6 out of 10.

Luci Lontane = Distant Lights
