De flyvende djævle

Anders Refn, Denmark, 1985

115 min.DK/Feature

The circus seen as a gaudy and glorious mirror of life. Director Anders Refn fills his cinemascope format to the brim with all the action and all the people that make an old-style, grand-style big top go round: the bold, the brave, the beautiful, the bad, and the love, lust, hate, hope, high skills and low schemings of them all. All this and an aerialist's dream: the quadruple flying somersault!

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
