Happy as lazzaro

Tues 26th/Weds 27th Nov 2019 7.30pm.

A simple, good-natured young tobacco farmer, Lazzaro, forms a deep and unlikely friendship with Tancredi, a young nobleman with a vivid imagination.

Disillusioned with life in their isolated pastoral village, Tancredi asks Lazzaro to help him fake his own kidnapping to scoop the ransom.

The two set off, but when a surprising event separates the friends, Lazzaro embarks on an enigmatic journey of magic realism leading him to the big city for the first time.

Cert PG-13. 128 mins. Subtitled.
