Movie Info

The film tells the circumstances surrounding the theft of several pre-Hispanic artifacts from the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City in 1985, and the surprise of the authorities when they discovered that the authors of such a feat had been two marginal young people from the suburbs, Carlos. Perches and Ramón Sardina (García Bernal and Leonardo Ortizgris), instead of the professional art thieves to whom the subtraction of objects was attributed


Critic Reviews for Museum (Museo)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

If you're going to pick history's pocket to tell a shaggy-dog story of distant fathers, weak sons and friendship so steadfast it can withstand even the bad weather of one's worst ideas, you better do it with movements this deft and fingers this light.

A cinematically exciting meeting point of the grandiose, the suspenseful and the pathetic.

February 22, 2018 | Full Review…

A film that knows how to stage the main event in an attention-grabbing manner, yet also knows how to ponder everything from the control of historical artefacts to the bonds of friendship to father-son relationships.

April 9, 2018 | Full Review…

By simultaneously celebrating the sacred culture of a nation and questioning its value altogether, the story of a once-in-history robbery resonates across cultures and eras.

Museum seems almost proud of this obfuscation, drawing attention to it as if it's something to be hailed. It's a clumsy final touch to a film that's simultaneously kinetic and lifeless.

March 6, 2018 | Full Review…

An endlessly entertaining, challenging investigation of history that confirms Ruizpalacios' status as the next big thing in Mexican cinema.
