Tommaso and Arturo are on the run in a remote forest. They hunt for food, trying to survive and find their way through the lush nature. It’s quiet, almost peaceful, until the sound of gunshots.
Widely considered to be Italian director Alessandro Comodin’s breakthrough film, this dreamlike, rural fable boldly combines personal history with woozy folklore. Shot on 35mm amid the evocative wildness of northern Italy, Happy Times Will Come Soon ushers us into a beautifully enigmatic new world.
