I don't know what this is supposed to be.
31 May 2017 | by ChinkyFunbagsSee all my reviews

First of all, the movie I saw was named Hell In A Circus. I don't know why this movie has two names but I do know that neither one makes much sense. The story is definitely not about a woman so I don't see how they thought The Constant Woman was a good title and there's no mention of a circus until the last ten minutes but Hell In A Circus is still a more fitting title. They spend way too much time showing actors on stage and people walking through hallways and almost no time on a plot. We see two different plays end(neither get applause from the audience), a fifteen minute speakeasy scene that was completely pointless, extended periods of silence and lots of plot holes.There is literally no story here. I was impressed that the people spoke like it was made today. I've seen movies ten and twenty years newer than this where the dialog was ridiculously dated. Plus the acting wasn't bad. Three stars.
