Moon And The Other

Luna e l'altra is set in Italy in 1955, a time of tension between the establishment and the communists. Nichetti plays a janitor in a school presided over by a rather reactionary principal. The school features a group of rambunctious youngsters whose energies are kept well in check by the uptight, highly disciplined teacher Luna, whom Nichetti pines for on the side. One day, when a couple of gypsy children steals a magic lantern from the local traveling circus, strange events ensue. What follows are high jinks of high order, full of effervescent imagination. A film that makes its points tellingly but affectionately.
