Happy as Lazzaro

Director: Alice Rohrwacher
IT, CH, FR, DE 2018125 min. 0 sec.
It’s summer at Inviolata, an isolated rural estate, where an extended family of tobacco farmers toil under the rule of a domineering marchesa, and where the handsome and hard-working Lazzaro - a young man imbued with a saint-like innocence, is alternately adored and taken advantage of. Beloved by audiences and critics at Cannes (where it was awarded the Best Screenplay prize), Alice Rohrwacher’s beautiful, new film is a beguiling allegory of love, loss and compassion exploring the troubled soul of Italy. Channelling the spirit of Pasolini, Rohrwacher’s tale casts an ethereal, wondrous spell, and confirms her status as one of the most inventive and compelling voices in contemporary Italian cinema.
