‘Has the urgency of a news bulletin and the authority of a classic.’
Among a large group of tobacco harvesters in sun-kissed bygone Italy, young Lazzaro is an innocent fool. He is ever-eager to please, and bumps along in wide-eyed generosity even when he and his mob are being bamboozled by the exploitative Marchesa, the ‘Queen of Cigarettes’. What begins as a gentle view of bucolic society then takes a time-bending turn part-way through.
Magically, we now face a different reality with the second half of this dreamy, Cannes prize-winning film seeing our hapless hero and pals encounter the corruption of modern Italy.
