A period drama set in the early years of the twentieth century. Josef, a former construction worker who delighted in dancing on girders high above the city, who now sweeps up at the circus. Once the big top's owner spots the young roustabout defying gravity on the trapeze, however, he endeavors to pair Josef with his aerialist daughter Alice in a perilous sky-high pas de deux. Offers a romantic view of big top life, with a moth-eaten angel in his feathered, tattered costume.
This movie is a visual masterpiece! Stunning photography, camera placement and motion was a feast for this writer's eyes. So much so, that I feel compelled to write my first review. The whole mood of the film was engaging and the acting - pitch perfect. I was unfamiliar with any of the actors, however I feel their performances can not be rivaled. The musical score was fitting and necessarily punctuates the mood. I am not in the motion picture business, and certainly not qualified to judge the technical aspects of such, but I am so glad I ran across this film and I would definitely recommend Bye Bye Blackbird to anyone.
