1h 59m | Drama | Release date: January 23, 1997 (South Africa)
A family’s life in the Karoo (a semi-desert area in South Africa) is changed when a travelling circus leaves behind a clown.
Refreshing to see that someone had the brains to put good money behind a good movie in a country that isn’t known for its cinema endeavours. I felt proud when I saw this movie. Brilliant acting from a cast you can see they love what they do.
I would love to know in which country this movie was released and what other people thought. It was entered for best foreign movie at the Oscars in (I think) 97, but it didn’t get nominated, one of the reasons being that the lengthy version (not the well edited one that got to the big screen) was submitted.
If you can find this movie, watch and enjoy.
