Happy as Lazzaro (12a)

Director Alice Rohrwacher. Italian Drama/Fantasy


Forever exploited by everyone in the village the sweet natured Lazzaro’s dreamy innocence throws a harsh light on the ways of the world. His unlikely friendship with the Marchesa’s petulant son Tancredi sets in motion a series of events that will change their ‘frozen in time’ world forever. This film mixes images of Italian class struggle, folk tales, biblical allegory, and pop culture with a genuine vision of a different way to live that gives you a lot to think about.

Starring Adriano Tardiolo, Sergi Lopez, Alba Rohrwacher
