Vote your your favourite at europeanfilmawards.eu/peopleschoiceaward Lazzaro is the kind soul who helps anyone in his village, which is cut off from the outside world by a bridge that no one has the energy to fix. The inhabitants of the village are serfs to the Marchesa, whose son drafts Lazzaro into a kidnapping plot that quickly go awry. Following up 'The Wonders', Alice Rohrwacher offers a beautiful freewheeling fable that has the timeless quality of a folk tale but also brings to mind Pasolini and Fellini. 'Happy as Lazzaro' has the brightness of a summer’s day, but also dark shade to luxuriate in. ★★★★★ "Alice Rohrwacher’s enigmatic drama is an unsettling and moving satire about the unquestioning toil of peasants’ lives." -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Could be a biting social commentary, a religious parable or a beguiling, supernatural tale. Perhaps it is all three" - Alexandra Pollard, The Independent ★★★★★ "Alice Rohrwacher could be Italian cinema’s salvation." - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
