Synopsis

When Lazzaro meets Tancredi the stage is set for a tale of magical realism  that is naturalistic on the outside and enchanting on the inside.


In a rural Italian village untouched and sheltered from the passage of time and dominated by the greedy Marchesa Alfonsina de Luna, The Cigarette Queen, live Lazzaro, a peasant boy so good that he is often mistaken for being simple-minded, and Tancredi a young nobleman cursed by his imagination. The strange and improbable friendship that develops is so precious that it will travel in time to transport Lazzaro to the Big City for the first time...


Winner of Best Screenplay at Cannes and executively produced by Martin Scorsese, HAPPY AS LAZZARO is a tale for the ages from a talent to savour. Alice Rohrwacher’s enchanting allegory is as ambitious as her characters’ plans and a poetic fable that is exhilarating as it is beautiful.
