Tancredi, a nobleman cursed by his imagination, has had enough of the terrible reign of a marchioness called “the Queen of Cigarettes.” He asks Lazzaro, a kind peasant whom many mistake for a simpleton, to stage his kidnapping. They form a friendship and Lazzaro ends up travelling back in time in search of Tancredi. A picturesque magic-realist fable that won for Best Screenplay at Cannes.
