Storyline

Roy Arnie has a dream. One day he will run his own circus and conquer the world. Today, however, he is a stable-hand working in the Circus Stromowski, a miserable Russian big top, run by a hopeless alcoholic fourth generation circus director, Igor Stromowski, and full of useless has-beens and tired animals, which will only perform under the influence of narcotics. Roy Arnie invites his old buddies Gaz and Odd, and their sidekick Flea, to come and work at the circus, and while work is an alien concept to Gaz and Odd, the appearance of an irate criminal who they are indebted to decides the issue. At the circus, Roy Arnie introduces the trio to the star attraction: Jimmy the elephant. Formerly a great sight, but after 20 years at the circus he has become addicted to every drug under the sun. He performs in a purple haze, counting down the days until someone realizes he will be more useful as a set of piano keys. Roy Arnie keeps him going with a complex regime of uppers and downers to ...

This movie RULES!!!
26 May 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Fredrik, dude, you are so wrong... Have you no sense of humor? Have we really seen the same film? I wonder...

This is a fantastic movie in every respect. The animation is state of the art, the story is fun and exciting, dynamite dialogue, and the characters... The characters are AMAZING!!! And yes, they are VERY authentic. Anyone with some knowledge of people like this will testify to that...

I've only seen the Norwegian version so far, but I am confident Nielsen will deliver the goods w/ respect to the English/American voices too. The man is a friggin genius - he is the Ibsen of the Scandinavian underground.

Do yourself a favor and give this one a shot. You won't regret it! K
