Sofie Mercier - Sphinx Cinema


Alice Rohrwacher’s LA CHIMERA is built as a labyrinth that - unlike a maze which can send you towards dead ends and back to the start - wants to unveil its destination. Her tale of lost love will make you go searching for the treasures of human connection beyond physical proximity, time and perspective. There’s a thread that guides you through, along classical myths and the magic you might discover in your everyday life; sculpting loved ones as hybrid creatures and showing you how gold is kept by the most troubled souls. During my final screening at the Cannes Film Festival, I dug deep into this film to find both darkness and light, and the sublime art of a filmmaker who remains humble in every shot.
