La Chimera

Directed by Alice Rohrwacher
Italy, Switzerland
130 minutes
In this enchanting romantic adventure and ripping heist movie like no other, a young British archaeologist (Josh O’Connor) gets caught up in an international network dealing in stolen Italian artefacts.
Tuscany, early 1980s. Arthur (a revelatory Josh O’Connor, The Crown) has just been released from a short stint in prison. During his earlier studies in the region, he fell in love with Beniamina, the daughter of an aging local aristocrat (Isabella Rossellini), but she’s now gone. And he’s fallen in with the Tombaroli, a rowdy crew of twenty-somethings who pretend to make their living as farmers and entertainers, but instead pilfer ancient Etruscan tombs for treasures to sell on the black market, hoping to one day strike it rich…

Straight from 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Rohrwacher’s rule-breaking, magical film uncovers a world of wonders just below the surface. La Chimera is a mesmerising ode to the fragility of the beautiful things in life, and a cautionary tale about how easily they can be lost.
