Happy As Lazzaro
Lazarillo de Tormes is the subject of an oft-studied Spanish text The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes and of His Fortunes and Adversities, published in 1554. While that Lazarillo isn’t necessarily the inspiration for our Lazzaro in Happy as Lazzaro, there must have been some inspiration pulled from that classic text when creating the eternally happy and equally accident-prone protagonist of this 2018 movie. Lazzaro is a sharecropper whose life is shaken up by a midpoint twist, and his response is an inspiring show of rising above the fray.
