Happy as Lazzaro

Directed by Alice Rohrwacher

“magic” – “It’s the best film of the week and probably the year too – Alice Rohrwacher is a modern master” The Guardian

Winner of Best Screenplay at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from Alice Rohrwacher (The Wonders) follows the adventures of a time-travelling man living on the fringes of society. A genre-bending rumination on the fate of innocence when faced with corruption and greed, the film echoes Jarman and Pasolini but also has a wonder and originality of its own.
