Everyone has their own Chimera, something they try to achieve but never manage to find...

For the band of tombaroli, thieves of ancient grave goods and archaeological wonders, the Chimera means redemption from work and the dream of easy wealth.

For Arthur (Josh O'Connor), the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina (Yile Vianello). To find her, Arthur challenges the invisible, searches everywhere, goes inside the Earth — in search of the door to the afterlife of which myths speak. In an adventurous journey between the living and the dead, between forests and cities, between celebrations and solitudes, the intertwined destinies of these characters unfold, all in search of the Chimera.

“Alice Rohrwacher's enigmatic and bracing La Chimera, its touch as glancing as a zephyr, asks more of us while demanding less. It’s the kind of movie you wake up from, as opposed to one you merely watch.” Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine.

2023. Italy/France/Switzerland. Director: Alice Rohrwacher. Cast: Josh O’Connor, Alba Rohrwacher, Carol Duarte. Duration: 2hrs 10mins. Cert: 15.
