La Chimera

Arthur, played masterfully by Josh O'Connor, is a young Englishman with a love for ancient civilizations. Together with his friends, he earns a living by plundering Etruscan tombs and selling works of art to wealthy collectors on the black market. In La Chimera, Arthur, tormented by a lost love, begins a quest to save himself and a past forever lost.

Filmmaker Alice Rohrwacher, a familiar face at IFFR, continues her journey through a lesser-known side of Italy, ignored in films, but essential for understanding a country full of mysteries and contradictions. She is deeply in love with the area she films and aptly captures the resilient beauty of the landscape and its inhabitants. The contrast between the glories of the past and the bleak, profit-driven present is shown without easy judgments or stereotypes, as she discreetly and lovingly dissects her character's complex nature. Thanks to the camaraderie of a great cast, in which Isabella Rossellini shines with her humor and elegance, and the always stunning camera work of Hélène Louvart, La chimera is a true cinematic journey.
