On a winding mountain road, Vittorio stops to help Kate, whose car has broken down. After gallantly making the repair, without a single word spoken, he speeds off. When their paths cross again, Vittorio learns that Kate has returned to join her family's traveling circus after leaving under mysterious conditions many years ago. Intrigued by her story, Vittorio stays for the show, and the next one, and little by little is integrated into the circus and the lives of its performers.

Rarified entertainment from an esteemed French director. May appeal to circus fans or devotees of modernist/postmodern theatre like Beckett. The extras reveal that the director invented the film on the fly, and that the actors got their scripts daily. One way of making a movie!

The great and beautiful English-born actress, Jane Birkin, now so much older and wiser than the leggy hippy in the '60s, turns in a good performance in this decidedly strange circus movie. Reminiscent of Fellini's La Strada, it shows the angst and neuroses behind the crumbling façade of a small travelling circus.
