"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.

"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.
