Happy as Lazzaro

Happy as Lazzaro

Rohrwacher's Lazzaro is an innocent, traversing a lush rural Italy with a saint-like resolve, handsome and young with an acute decency either exploited or worshipped. Lazzaro's encounter's with a landowner's son lead to an unpredictably unfolding chaos, presented with an adherence to a fantastical magical-realism. A masterpiece of contemporary Italian cinema, and a glowing tribute to Pier Paolo Pasolini.
