Con Josh O'Connor, Isabella Rossellini, Alba Rohrwacher, Carol Duarte, Vincenzo Nemolato.

Duración: 130 minutos

Cada uno tiene su propia quimera, algo que intentan conseguir pero nunca logran encontrar. Para la banda de “tombaroli” -ladrones de tumbas donde encuentran maravillosos ajuares funerarios y tesoros arqueológicos- la quimera significa el sueño de la riqueza fácil. Sin embargo, para Arthur, la quimera se parece a la mujer que perdió, Beniamina. Para encontrarla, desafía lo invisible, se adentra en la tierra, busca la puerta al más allá de la que hablan los mitos. En un viaje aventurero entre vivos y muertos, entre bosques y ciudades, entre celebraciones y soledades, donde se desarrollan los destinos entrelazados de estos personajes.

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.
