happy as lazzaro

5 – 11 April, 2019

Alice Rohrwacher’s Cannes prize-winner is a lustrous, genre-bending gem set in a tiny village that seems cut off from the modern world. Gentle, meek and mild peasant Lazzaro (Adriano Tardiolo) is happy to do the bidding of anyone who asks. His friend Tancredi (Tommaso Ragno) makes him an accomplice in a cunning plan to fake his own kidnapping and pocket the ransom from his wealthy, much-loathed mother. Nothing goes quite as expected in a heady, spellbinding cocktail of folklore, allegory, tales from the class struggle and the fate of the innocent in a world filled with greed and corruption. GFF19
