In an isolated mountain community, the villagers have not been told by overseer Marchesa that sharecropping has been made illegal - so they continue to work for almost nothing. Lazzaro is a kind teenager who’s always given the village’s most thankless tasks. After striking up an unlikely alliance with Marchesa’s son, Lazzaro is caught up in a fake kidnapping scheme that will send him on a journey through time itself... 

Rohrwacher has crafted a magic-realist fable that doubles as an origin myth for a modern Italy subsumed by corruption and decline.  

– Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian

a slow but bewitching burn that rewards viewers’ patience with humor and uncanny grace

 -Guy Lodge, Variety

…..there is a genuine freshness and idiosyncrasy to her (Rohrwachers)work..
