Happy as Lazzaro

Happy as Lazzaro

Lazzaro is the kind soul who helps anyone in his village, which is cut off from the outside world by a bridge that no one has the energy to fix. The inhabitants of the village are serfs to the Marchesa, whose son drafts Lazzaro into a kidnapping plot that quickly go awry.

Following up The Wonders, Alice Rohrwacher offers a beautiful freewheeling fable that has the timeless quality of a folk tale but also brings to mind Pasolini and Fellini.

Happy as Lazzaro has the brightness of a summer’s day, but also dark shade to luxuriate in.
