"A layered, labyrinthine meditation on Italy, failure and the need to continue moving forward even in the face of the impossible."
— Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

About the Film
A film involving two servants, a man and a beast, embark upon a long fable-like quest through a lost and beautiful Italy, at the end of which they will not find quite what they had expected. Shot on expired 16mm stock, Lost and Beautiful is a ravishing work that heralds the arrival of an extraordinary new filmmaker.
