La Chimera

11 – 23 May, 2024

The Crown’s Josh O’Connor stars as an adrift Englishman with an unusual talent in this playful drama centring on a gang of grave robbers on the hunt for ancient Etruscan relics.

The Crown’s Josh O’Connor proves he’s just as good in Italian as he is in English in Alice Rohrwacher’s heady mix of gritty social drama and magical realism. He plays adrift Englishman Arthur, who is mourning his lost love and whose dowsing talents see him join a group of grave robbers to locate ancient artefacts. There’s never a dull moment as Rohrwacher dips in and out of Arthur’s reveries at the same time as he is drawn to Italia (Carol Duarte), who is the helpmate of his lost girlfriend’s mum (Isabella Rossellini). A tale of intrigue that offers plenty to unearth.

Italian and English with English subtitles.
