Gael García Bernal stars in this “fabulously entertaining” (Variety) new comedy thriller in which two gormless Mexican veterinary students break into Mexico’s National Museum of Anthropology on Christmas Eve 1985 and steal 140 Mayan and Mesoamerican objects. Based on an actual case, this widely praised new film is funny, rueful, stylish, and even thoughtful, raising the sensitive issue of cultural plundering of ancient artifacts. “Made of dazzle and wit and melancholy…An irresistibly inventive and unusually intelligent tall tale.” –Variety. With Alfredo Castro. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 128 min.
