Storyline

Frac, a mime who is suffering from a severe bout of depression, happens to meet a troupe of circus entertainers and immediately falls in love with one of the stars, Giulietta. But while his affection for Giulietta and admiration for the performers gives him a new lease on life, Giulietta's father, the leader of the troupe, opposes the relationship and is determined to keep them apart. Meanwhile, Frac and Giulietta discover a gang of children who are held prisoner by a criminal leader who forces them to do his bidding, and they devise a plan to win the kids their freedom.

Great Circus Performance
18 July 2005 | by corteoSee all my reviews

Well, although it is a high grade for a not-very-known-movie; this is a great performance by the Cirque Du Soleil (The biggest and greatest cirque now existing) by mixing "Romeo and Juliette" and the currently-touring-show "Alegria". This is one of the 2 movies that the Cirque has made, and even though it doe not has a lot of budget they make a enjoyable movie. There's a great performance by Julie Cox, who before this was a little unknown, and she might not have a lot of fame but after this it gave her a good point in her "Resumeé". And this other unknown-movie actor Rene Bazinet, who had formerly played in another Cirque show, "Saltimbanco", who gives a funny and charming performance. It isn't a Must-see movie but a pleasant-to-see.
