Happy as Lazzaro (Alice Rohrwacher, 2018), 1.05am, Film4

Lazzaro (Adriano Tardiolo) is the amiable dogsbody of the Italian village of Inviolata, whose residents spend their days growing tobacco for the landowner, the Marchesa (Nicoletta Braschi). But in Alice Rohrwacher’s wonderful fable there is something unusual going on here – from Lazzaro’s implacably innocent “holy fool” to the medieval treatment of the rural workers, who are permanently in debt to their boss. No spoilers about where the drama ends up, but there are religious overtones to this affecting tale of humanity seen at its best and its worst. Simon Wardell
