Film description

In her third feature Happy as Lazzaro Alice Rohrwacher (Heavenly Body) blends in magical realism with social drama and presents a pastoral fable about an isolated Italian farm Inviolate and its inhabitants – sharecroppers, unaware of their true rights and exploited by a tobacco magnate, Marchesa Alfonsina de Luna (Nicoletta Braschi, Life is Beautiful).

Among them works Lazzaro (Adriano Tardiolo) – a young man with a sweet disposition and an angel-like face who is frequently used for tasks no one else enjoys completing. Lazzaro, however, carries out each request without a single complaint, with a melancholic smile on his lips. One day this affable boy befriends Tancredi, Marchesa’s son, and suddenly becomes a part of his ploy…
