A glimpse into the lives of others, 12 December 2012
Author: ronchow from Canada

Director Aaron Schock had his camera following members of a circus family in Mexico and they went about their daily life, performances and road trips. This family which included 4 children, all performers, roamed from one small town to the other to make a meagre living through their performances - a dying art. Life was not easy, but even the children seemed to be content with that life style.

Acting was flawless and often you think the it was done without the family members knowing the camera was there. There was also a candid look into the usual problems within a family, including the conflict between the parents over the wellbeing of the children. Through this film you will have a good, honest look into the lives of a family that you would not otherwise relate to.

The bonus materials is good, too. An update on the family after the film was done gives the viewing an interesting closure. I highly recommended this film to anyone seeking a story in real life, and not Hollywood escapism.
