Scene from "Moonman" (photo © Toccata-Film)

Once upon a time there lived a man up in the silvery moon. He was so lonely that he hadn’t laughed for a hundred years. His greatest wish was to visit us humans, just once in his life. One night his dream was fullfilled and he managed to voyage down to earth on a buzzling comet. But nobody understood the poor creature. Nobody – except one...

A dreamlike adventure into the imagination of a child, based on Tomi Ungerer’s classic picture-book The Moonman.
