Great success at Cannes Film Festival for Lazzaro felice, film set in Viterbese
A thunderous applause has decreed the great success at Cannes Film Festival for Lazzaro felice, film set in Viterbese by Alice Rohrwacher, the director who in 2014, at the same festival, won the Grand Prix with the film Le meraviglie.
Lazzaro is such a pure hearted young man that many would consider him to be an idiot. He might be a peasant but he’s worthy enough for the friendship of spoiled aristocrat Tancredi. They find joy in a forgotten pastoral world of deception and lies. The truth will separate them, but Lazzaro’s loyalty will withstand the test of time when he is catapulted alone into a bleak metropolis.
