Movie Info

Based on a Spanish literary classic, this excellent costume drama follows the adventures of Lazarillo (Marco Paoletti), a young impoverished boy who has no one to financially or emotionally support and nurture him. So he becomes the cohort of a villainous, blind beggar as the only ready means of survival. Next, he hooks up with an impecunious cleric who in that regard, is not much different than the beggar. Lazarillo then continues on his way and finds a supposed nobleman who turns out to have about as much money as Lazarillo -- nada. Finally, the lad joins up with a troupe of actors, a family who wanders from town to town performing, and finally life begins to look more interesting.
