Plot Sypnosis:

Director Luigi Bazzoni's unique vision of Footprints on the Moon is brought to life by the striking cinematography of Vittorio Storaro (three-time Oscar winner including 'Apocalypse Now'). Florinda Bolkan ('Flavia The Heretic') delivers a masterful, nuanced performance bringing captivating depth to the character of Alice - a young translator grappling with memory loss.

Tormented by nightmare visions of a sinister scientist (Klaus Kinski) deliberately abandoning astronauts to die on the Moon, Alice is struggling to recall three missing days. A mysterious postcard beckons her to the enigmatic island of Garma. Once there, an unsettling revelation unfolds: the inhabitants recognize her presence during the unaccounted-for days, not as Alice, but as another person named Nicole. Confronting uncomfortable truths, Alice embarks on a quest to unravel the mystery shrouding her identity and the events of those missing days - a quest which culminates in murder and an extraordinarily surreal finale.

Touching on mental health issues as well as on climate change, it resonates with today's challenges while immersing viewers in an emotionally charged experience that transcends the ordinary.

Footprints on the Moon unfolds as a mesmerizing exploration of identity and the boundaries of perceived reality, memory, dreams, and existential mysteries; it stands as the most haunting and visually stunning Giallo you will ever see, presented here restored from 4K scans of the original camera negative, finally doing justice to the exquisite unearthly visions of its creators.
