Against a heavy cloak of secrecy, a 12-year-old girl, smitten with her handsome classmate, ventures deeper and deeper into the enchanted Sicilian forests to find him, unaware of just how thick the mystery behind his strange disappearance really is.
Sicilian Ghost Story is a film about a young girl Luna (Julia Jedlikowska) who goes in search of her classmate and crush Giuseppe (Gaetano Fernandez) after he is kidnapped. Though the film markets itself as a Drama/Fantasy, it shares little in common with what may appear on the surface to be similar movies, such as Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth. Fantasy does not manifest itself in the film as a literal element, but more as a metaphorical one. There are no strange creatures lurking in the forest,
