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, the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina. 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. [NEON]

"Uniquely magical."

— David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"Josh O’Connor excels in this gritty yet poetic Italian-French-Swiss drama."

— Anna Smith,

"La Chimera is a pictorial delight to luxuriate in, as it is a philosophical wonder on the unknowability of time."

— Tomris Laffly, TheWrap

"La Chimera is often enrapturing, focusing on a fascinating character and his troubled relationship to the world and its physical history."

— Laura Babiak, Observer

"This film is clever, ambitious, and funny throughout, but it also works as an intelligent meditation on our attitudes toward life, love, and death."

— Peter Sobczynski,

"Alice Rohrwacher’s new film is a beguiling fantasy-comedy of lost love: garrulous, uproarious and celebratory in her absolutely distinctive style."

— Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"There’s nothing quite like La Chimera -- which is typical of the Italian filmmaker Alice Rohrwacher, who is fond of adding dashes of magic to tales that explore her country’s past."

— David Sims, The Atlantic

"Rohrwacher’s divine La Chimera is an observant and comic portrait of a moment within Italian history, and an earthy, shimmering fable about the gravesites we walk over every day."

— Mark Asch, Little White Lies

"O’Connor’s exquisite performance seems to channel Harry Dean Stanton’s haunted turn in “Paris, Texas”; less wraith-like in its physicality, but similarly intangible, like a man being played by his own shadow."

— David Ehrlich, indieWire
