Happy as Lazzaro is an italian film that just came out in 2018. It won the Cannes Film Festival for The Best Screenplay and the European Film Award. This, I do not understand. It is my all time least favorite movie on the face of the planet. DO NOT waste your time. You know it’s the wrong movie for you when it ends and you yell: “What was that?” or “It’s over? They can’t end on that!” or “That was garbage!”
Lazzaro, a good-hearted young peasant, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination, form a life-altering bond when Tancredi asks Lazzaro to help him orchestrate his own kidnapping.
