This beautifully shot, Cannes ‘Best Screenplay’-winning magical-realist fable follows in the cinematic footsteps of Jarman and Fellini, mixing folk tales with social critique, biblical allegories and pop culture references. Lazzaro is a young peasant whose sweet nature makes people mistake him for simple-minded. He happily does the bidding of anyone in his local village, and even makes a friend of Tancredi, the petulant son of the Marchesa who rules over the village. But then Tancredi convinces his new ally to help him stage a dramatic incident to secure a ransom…

“… inexpressibly moving, yet also disturbing and unaccountable. It is a pastoral
enigma, and a satirical attack on exploitative feudal snobbery…”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
