Will Wonders Never Cease

Look at that face! How could you not trust that sweet face? That's Adriano Tardiolo, who plays the titular character in Alice Rohrwacher's latest movie Happy as Lazzaro, a bittersweet fable of Italian proportions. I don't know what that means precisely but I like the way it sounds; it sounds right. Anyway my review is up now at The Film Experience - this movie screened at NYFF this weekend and if you missed it it's worth keeping an eye out for when it comes out at the end of November. I think it's probably Rohrwacher's best film to date, and I quite liked The Wonders. It's like The Wonders just without all of those terrifying bee-in-mouth scenes!
