Two very different men form a connection in Alice Rohrwacher’s charming comedy/drama set in Italy. The winner of best screenplay at Cannes, the film blends social drama and time travel in this movie set in the past and present. It centres on the title character, a young and optimistic farmer, who builds an unlikely bond with a rebellious aristocrat. It grows into a modern, dreamlike fable about the power of friendship and empathy. 

With the support of the Italian Institute of Culture.

One of the hits of last years Cannes, Rohrwacher's stunning film is a mesmerising fable of chance and fate.
