The Last Circus

In Franco’s Spain, a beautiful trapeze artist must choose between two clowns: Sergio, a distinguished clown consumed with hate, and Javier, a deeply disturbed clown. A film that builds on its historical context but is deeply sentimental, The Last Circus brings together its author’s obsessions, between humour and horror, paroxysmal excesses and grotesque melancholy.
