"Clever, ambitious, and funny throughout, but it also works as an intelligent meditation on our attitudes toward life, love, and death." - Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com

"Enrapturing." - Laura Babiak, Observer

Recently released from prison, Arthur (The Crown’s Josh O’Connor) arrives in a rumpled suit to a rural town in Italy. There, he connects with a band of “tombaroli” - tomb raiders who dig up ancient graves to steal the long long treasures buried with the dead. As Arthur and the ragtag team of thieves hunt for spoils, he also searches for the woman he lost, Beniamina. In this beguiling and delightful fairy tale from Alice Rohrwacher (HAPPY AS LAZZARO), the intertwined destinies of these characters, all in search of unrealized dreams, unfold.
