Alice Rohrwacher has again opted for rustic Italy as the setting for her story about friendship and infinite kindness. Cannes Film Festival Best Screenplay Award.

This is the tale of a meeting between Lazzaro, a young peasant so good that he is often mistaken for a simpleton, and Tancredi, a young nobleman cursed by his imagination. Life in their isolated
pastoral village Inviolata is dominated by the terrible Marchesa Alfonsina de Luna, the queen of cigarettes. A loyal bond is sealed when Tancredi asks Lazzaro to help him orchestrate his own kidnapping. This strange and improbable alliance is a revelation for Lazzaro. A friendship so precious that it will travel in time and transport Lazzaro in search of Tancredi. His first time in the big city, Lazzaro is like a fragment of the past lost in the modern world.

"Lazzaro Felice is the story of a lesser sanctity, with no miracles, no powers or superpowers, without special effects. It is the sanctity of living in this world without thinking ill of anyone and simply believing in human beings. Because another way was possible, the way of goodness, which men have always ignored but which always reappears to question them. Like something that might have been but that we've never wanted." (Alice Rohrwacher)
