Audience Reviews for Happy as Lazzaro (Lazzaro felice)

  • Jan 19, 2019
    You'd never expect a movie that features both social commentary and magical realism to feel this grounded and reserved and yet Rohrwacher finds a way to pull it off. Even more impressive is that the mid-point of the movie features a number of startling twists in the narrative that happen organically.
