Storyline

Milano, anni cinquanta, secondo dopoguerra. Luna Di Capua lavora come insegnante in una scuola elementare. E' arrivata in città anni prima con il padre, da Napoli. Angelo Franchini, custode nella stessa scuola, è segretamente innamorato della ragazza, ma non riesce a dichiararsi. Durante una notte di tempesta, a causa di una scatola magica, l'ombra di Luna si stacca da lei, rendendosi visibile ed iniziando ad avere una vita propria. Inizia così per la timida ed introversa Luna una nuova vita, che la porterà a conoscere sé stessa, i propri desideri ed anche l'amore del caro ed affettuoso custode. Written by rosebud6

Interesting! A neo-realist and original tale of fantasy and love.
6 July 2000 | by (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Milan in the 1950s............"Luna e l'altra" is the tale of an elementary school teacher Luna di Capua (who came to Milan with her father from Naples in post-War Italy) whose dreary life takes a very unexpected turn one stormy night when her shadow separates itself from her and assumes a life of her own. A neo-realist and original tale of fantasy and love skilfully woven on film. Dark brooding scenes contrast with many humorous and enlightening moments, just as the introverted personality of Luna contrasts with the exuberant personality of her "shadow-come-to- life"............The film imbues the audience with a semi- surrealistic feeling of love, euphoria and sacrifice...........
