Happy as Lazzaro

Film stills

Pasakojama apie Šventąjį, kuris mokėjo susikalbėti su gyvūnais.

This is the tale of a meeting between Lazzaro, a young peasant so good that he is often
mistaken for simple-minded, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination. A
loyal bond between them is sealed when Tancredi asks Lazzaro to help him orchestrate his
own kidnapping: an event that will quite literally bend time.
