Loud, vulgar, and frequently obnoxious, the film nevertheless has a perfect integrity in its excesses. This is filmmaking from the groin, unabashed and unrestrained.

Ravishing to look at, but the movie's real curiosity is the way it fails to reverse Bertolucci's usual preoccupations.

Did a little bird try to warn Bertolucci that this material was, to put it kindly, two bricks short of a load?

La Luna is a spectacle-sized melodrama filled with a variety of themes -- plots and subplots that merge asymmetrically into a melodramatic mold.

No amount of purloined Verdi can transform these banalities into anything else, while the film's ending, if it means what it certainly seems to mean, would embarrass a backstage Broadway musical movie, much less a backstage Rome opera movie.
