Tired of life on the road, a lonely clown leaves the circus where he worked with his father, also a clown, to embark on a soul-searching trip to the big city. On his journey, he experiences a startling revelation that gives him a newfound appreciation for his talents as an entertainer.
This acclaimed drama is set in the 1970s, in the deep Brazilian countryside, where there are no cinemas or theaters, and the circus is the main form of entertainment. The movie explores the way of living of those entertainers, who would arrive at towns once a year, raise their tent, make people laugh and then leave. The film is also a good tool to understand the Brazilian popular humor.
Don't miss the opportunity to see the last featured film of the Brazilian Movie Month, on Tuesday (26 September), at 7:00pm at Goethe-Institute.
