I haven't seen this film since it played here in Vancouver in 1979, when I fell in love with it. This DVD version revived my feelings. The story was very daring for its day, and still is. The photography is magnificent. And then there is Jill Clayburgh. Her performance here rivals the one she gave in "An Unmarried Woman". Bertolucci created a stir with "Last Tango In Paris" and kept things going with this film. This isn't just a movie, it's art on celluloid. Don't miss it.

I hunted for this for years! Opera, drugs, adolescent angst and a dash of incest. What's not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars mystery of the moon 20 April 2010
By Joel, Holden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
LA LUNA manages to be as open faced, and as innocent as the blue sky on a summer day. It makes full use of the method we use to tell stories that covers forbidden love. As an opera singer, Jill Clayburgh's character is only acting out eons of plays. Full, dizzy, deep, captivating, lost as a child. This story is I think a fable. It is gawky at times. It is sweet at times. Both mother and son play martyr back and forth. There is a hilarious unmeant take on the boy finding out the parallel concerning his real father. And Jill Clayburgh is after all AN UNMARRIED WOMAN. She is at her most luminous here, a screen legend, perhaps. Matthew Barry plays her son. Even his character's drug addiction is seen as, though profoundly heart wrenching and painful, an idea more than an act of the screen. I see already. I am putting up boundaries. Justifications for saying it's not really about incest. Thus justifying my having bought the film and seen it and liked it.

But you know what? This film, flawed as it is, takes flight. It's about the moon and mysteries and dilemmas and love and music and hatred and addiction. It's a child's dream, don't you get it? It's as unreal, as disjointed and surreal as as. So played his dream on a sunny huge drawing board on a summer morning, on a balcony of a Saturday. It's every bedroom in the world where a boy feels wonder, because time is come to dream. And it's big and expansive, they go to Italy for God's sake, people dance in the streets and sang opera, including his mother. He saw the way the stage of opera looked so close with the falseness obvious. Thus, imagination takes over.

It rather dances like sunshine on a rainy day. Look at the boy. He's addicted to life. It's a story of confusing love. She finally leaves him off in a strange unknown place. But he goes away from her. The symbolism is a bit much sometimes. The film is happy as it closes. Much as MURMUR OF THE HEART ends, with joy and acceptance. So was in the sunlight this film, almost. The masturbation scene is quite heartbreaking and loving. I guess that that causes more bother than say the drug addiction. As she covers up her son, the blanket that covers him in love,a blanket from hopefully many eyes falls, and we see something intensely really human.

If anything the film is nascent, wanting to be liked, and caught in a chrysalis. It says okay. You moral arbiters of society, listen to this, watch me. I would tell you this story as bright sunshine, on ancient white walls of Italy. He says, the boyish manner this film, I give you my heart. And I give you my imagination before I learned that imagining that even in secret was wrong. I cry for you, I love you, I hate you. Stages of childhood. The film, like the boy, like his mother, know what you think. And they care about much. They have thoughts. They're embarrassing. They embarrassed each other and themselves. The boy and the girl in the balcony of the theater to simply get high, almost have sex. But something occurs, the opening of the skylight, the moon shining down. It is the sky and everything. One of those tiny sliver moments when you feel good being a child, knowing you're to be a child little longer.

I don't care anymore what people think about morality. Usually, the moralists have the most to hide. This is a film of childhood sweet times and filled with pain yes, of the pain of addiction and fear of being very small in a very big world. And the moon getting further and further away. And the never to touch again, the steel ticking of time and stern revolving of the planet. The moon dark at night, except right in your soul, when you put the palate down to turn the drawing away. And he remembered a dream that took him. To tell him the secrets of the moon. Of a summer's day.

My only complaint is the too brief appearance of wonderful Fred Gwynne.

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked masterpiece. 10 May 2009
By Lalo C. Dominguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
La Luna for some reason is not much talked about or remembered, but to me is one of Bernardo Bertolucci's best movies. The subject matter is very strong and risky. (for mature audiences only) But the acting is superb, the directing is superb. A must see.
