Museo is a witty and thrilling heist film from Mexico starring the great Gael GarcÃa Bernal (Amores Perros) and directed with flair by Alonso Ruizpalacios (GÃ¼eros).
Well into their 30s, Juan NuÃ±ez (Bernal) and BenjamÃn Wilson (Leonardo Ortizgris, GÃ¼eros) still can't seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents' homes. Instead, they wallow in comfortable limbo in the district of Satelite, Mexico City's version of an American suburb. On a fateful Christmas Eve, however, they decide it's finally time to distinguish themselves by executing the most infamous cultural artifacts heist in all of Mexican history, looting the country's iconic National Anthropology Museum in an act worthy of the Ocean's Eleven crew.
Inspired by true events, and shot on never-before filmed locations in Mexico, Museo is a sardonic cautionary tale that underscores the old adage: you don't know what you've got â€˜til it's gone.
