La Chimera (15)

Set in 1980s Tuscany this beguiling drama stars Josh O’Conner (The Crown, God’s Own Country) as Arthur, an English archaeologist who falls in with a rowdy band of tombaroli (tomb robbers) to search for Etruscan treasures to sell on the Black market. For the tombaroli, the Chimera is the dream of easy wealth. For Arthur, the Chimera is the woman he lost. In an adventurous journey between the living and the dead, the destinies of these characters unfold as they search for their Chimera.
