Superb retelling of the classic story
28 July 2005 | by (Wichita, Kansas) – See all my reviews

This retelling of the classic story of the simple juggler varies from the original in certain ways, but it is still very well told and the message shines through. The Juggler (played by Carl Carlsson, a professional juggler whose stage name actually is Barnaby) is presented as a tragic figure, trying to get past a terrible loss in his life. His juggling is still top-notch, but he is just too sad a figure to make it as a street performer. Along comes "Sparrow" (Patrick Collins in a superb performance), who has little juggling talent but whose outlook on life helps Barnaby rediscover some of the joy he lost. Alas, tragedy is to touch the Juggler's life once again, and this time he finds himself at a Catholic retreat... after renouncing his juggling for good. In this retelling, Providence intervenes and Barnaby takes up his craft once again, juggling (a performance you have to see to believe) for the statue of the Blessed Virgin.

Very highly recommended. You don't have to like juggling to enjoy this movie!
