HAPPY AS LAZZARO (12A) – 2018 Italy 127 mins – Italian with subtitles

Director: Alice Rohrwacher
Stars: Adriano Tardiolo, Alba Rohrwacher, Sergi López

In an isolated valley with few traces of the modern world, a group of farmers eke out a living under the thumb of the local gentry. The simple and kindly Lazzaro helps to keep spirits high until the Marquise’s foolish son stages his own kidnapping, unleashing a chain of events with bizarre and miraculous results. Resolving Lazzaro’s destiny, Rohrwacher crafts an engrossing, richly populated and strikingly photographed fable.

…Rohrwacher paints a magical portrait of the decay of rural life, intertwining the past and the present in a work that is as exhilarating as it is sublime – ★★★★★ Joseph Walsh, Time Out
