Happy as Lazzaro
WINNER: BEST SCREENPLAY, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
In her latest award-winning feature Italian filmmaker Alice Rohrwacher (The Wonders) has created an extraordinarily beautiful and inventive fable that bends the rules of time and imagination. Newcomer Adriano Tardiolo gives an impressive performance as angelic innocent Lazzaro, a peasant who supports his fellow villagers in any way possible. The naive and hardworking youth unwittingly becomes a pawn to a rebellious young nobleman; tragedy and time-travel ensue. Balancing the fine line between fact and fable, contemporary and traditional, Rohrwacher's feature weaves an enchanting yet mystical spell.
Alice Rohrwacher's heady, ambitious third film mixes time-bending fabulism with contemporary social critique to gradually exhilarating effect. – Guy Lodge, Variety
