Mystical archaeologist and seeker of buried riches, “The Englishman” (Josh O’Connor), fresh out of prison, reunites with his band of grave robbers in search of the ultimate treasure, a legendary doorway to the afterlife and his beloved Beniamina. Somewhere between a chanson de geste and a playful tale, Rohrwacher turns magician. Folklore, dreams, superstitions, opera, circus, painting, contemporary and immemorial Italian stories, all bubble over with extreme generosity. Isabella Rosselini’s sublime presence oversees this work that enthralls with its twists and turns, enchants with its charms and astounds with its overflowing creativity. Simply magical.
