The Circus Casablanca

Erik Clausen, Denmark, 1981

96 min.DK/Feature

A road movie about two down-at-heels travelling performers and con artists and their lady partner. Things ain't what they used to be and nothing they do seems to improve matters greatly. The trio moves bravely through literally the outskirts of welfare Denmark, constantly failing to convince anybody, let alone themselves, that theirs is not a dying life-style, out-of-fashion and out of tune.
