LAZZARO FELICE, written and directed by Alice Rohrwacher
With Adriano Tardiolo, Alba Rohrwacher, Tommaso Ragno, Luca Chikovani, Agnese Graziani, Sergi Lopez, Natalino Balasso et la participation de Nicoletta Braschi.
The story of Lazzaro, a peasant still shy of 20 and so good he appears stupid, and Tancredi, a young man of the same age but spoilt by his own imagination, is the story of a friendship. It’s a friendship that begins genuinely amid a flurry of secret schemes and lies. Full of light and youthful enthusiasm, it’s the first friendship Lazzaro has ever had. And it subsequently survives the passing of time and the disruptive consequences of a Big Swindle to bring the one, Lazzaro, to a huge, empty city in search of the other, Tancredi.
