Critic Reviews for Happy as Lazzaro (Lazzaro felice)
Happy as Lazzaro could be a biting social commentary, a religious parable or a beguiling, supernatural tale. Perhaps it is all three.
I found the film tendentious and sophomoric, and Lazzaro's Forrest Gump imitation inevitably tedious.
Like early Pasolini, Rohrwacher's films are on the level with their subjects - there's no swank or pretension. They seem to muck in with the communities they're about.
Rohrwacher interweaves class discourse, the realities of poverty, and queer magical realism.
Happy As Lazzaro... is a weightless enigma, an unfathomable promise of happiness, gently tugging you upward, like a balloon on the end of a string.
Rohrwacher strives to lighten the allegorising with bits of humour and antic surrealism. We still feel as if we are watching a Brecht play done by street buskers. The view into the kitchen garden of history starts to become pedagogic.
Audience Reviews for Happy as Lazzaro (Lazzaro felice)
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.
