Synopsis

Described as a "luminous magic-realist fable" this is the story of Lazzaro, a beautiful peasant whose sweet nature makes people mistake him for simple-minded.

He is happy to help anyone in his village, which is ruled over by the evil Marchesa. Lazzaro is befriended by the Marchesa's petulant son, who convinces him to stage a dramatic incident to secure a ransom.

A myth of a modern Italy consumed by corruption and decline, Happy as Lazzaro, is a beautifully shot (on Super 16mm) film incorporating some exquisite imagery.

Winner of the Best Screenplay Award, Cannes 2018

Critics

open_quote This movie feels bracingly new and also like something that has been here forever. It has the urgency of a news bulletin and the authority of a classic close_quote New York Times
