A Real Treat for Circus Fans
7 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was apparently a spinoff of Don Ameche's stint as host of the TV series "International Showtime" and if the program was anything like this movie, it must have been amazing. These are some of the most incredible circus acts I have ever seen. The moments where performers balance themselves on the points of two knives are particularly astounding; it truly seems to defy both gravity and reality. Most of the featured acts seem to come from various European circuses, so it's definitely not the same old stuff you might have seen from American companies.
