Happy As Lazzaro



Happy As Lazzaro


Monday 27 January 8.30pm Channel 039

The story begins with Lazzaro, a young peasant so good that he is often mistaken for being simple-minded, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination. Life in their isolated pastoral village Inviolata is dominated by the terrible Marchesa Alfonsina de Luna, a ruthless tobacco tyrant.  A loyal bond is sealed when Tancredi asks Lazzaro to help him orchestrate his own kidnapping. This strange and improbable alliance is a revelation for Lazzaro. His first time in the big city, Lazzaro is like a fragment of the past, lost in the modern world. Winner of Best Screenplay and nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Starring Adriano Tardiolo, Agnese Graziani & Alba Rohrwacher.
