Movie Info

Perches and Ramón Sardina (García Bernal and Leonardo Ortizgris), instead of the professional art thieves to whom the subtraction of objects was attributed

"Museo" is slightly frustrating on first watch, as its themes lie partly hidden behind Bernal's intentionally abrasive performance and the mix-and-match filmmaking of Ruizpalacios.

Moviegoers looking for the kind of zip found in an "Ocean's" movie may feel a bit lost at sea with "Museo" and its offbeat rhythms and quirky charms. But the rewards definitely will be greater, if you keep an open mind.

Even after the story runs out, it's still a joy to watch.

"Museo" is the work of a genuinely creative directorial talent, and the early family scenes, richly detailed and shrewdly acted, provide just the right emotional context for this squabbling, indecisive gang of two.

With his characters unable to fence the goods, writer-director Alonso Ruiz Palacios has no place to turn but in the direction of head-scratching surrealism.

"Museo" is a fun, stylish, singular heist flick that's about so much more than the theft itself.
