‘LUNA’ NABS ITALO RIBBON

ROME — Maurizio Nichetti’s “Luna e l’Altra” was voted best film at the 52nd Nastri d’Argento (Silver Ribbon) awards Saturday in Rome, also landing a best actress nod for Iaia Forte as the surreal comedy’s split-personality protagonist.

Forte shared the prize with Virna Lisi in “Follow Your Heart.” Best actor went to Leonardo Pieraccioni for the box office smash “The Cyclone,” which also won for Giovanni Veronesi and Pieraccioni’s screenplay.

Best supporting actress went to Lucia Poli for “Albergo Roma” and supporting actor to Gianni Cavina in “Festival,” directed by Pupi Avati, who was voted best producer, along with Antonio Avati, for the same film.

Italy’s oldest film awards, the Nastri d’Argento are presented annually by the Assn. of Italian Film Journalists. Reflecting a lackluster year for national cinema, no clear winner emerged; honors were spread among a large number of films, acknowledging both commercial hits and disappointments.

Other prizes included best debut feature to Roberto Cimpanelli’s “A Cold, Cold Winter” and story to Sergio Citti for “We Free Kings.”
