An architect allies himself with a bunch of grave robbers while searching for his late lover in this charming fantasy.
After some time in jail, rugged English architect Arthur returns to Italy in search of a gate to the underworld as he hopes to reunite with his late lover. Arthur finds himself tangled up with a ragtag crew of grave robbers, who keep him close as he wields a secret ability to locate Etruscan graves buried deep underground. In a perpetual state of limbo, Arthur straddles reality and the great beyond, chasing a chimera to hunt for something deeper in the here and now.
Rohrwacher blends the magical into a Greek tragedy that slowly unfolds in a transcendental 1980s Italy. La Chimera is a symphony of mythology and meaning-making, unafraid to question the illusion of all things grand and treasured.
