Set in Brazil's southern city of Porto Alegre, the film focuses on a socially repressed young man who only comes out of his shell during chatroom performances, when he strips and smears neon paints on his lithe body.
A perfectly told story about live. There is a few movies like this, which, on the one hand, give you a possibility to think of a serious questions, and on the other, to get pleasure from beautiful pucture and music. It is very nice also that director selected an original "prototype" to make movie movie about (i mean "circo").
Started as a classical drama about past times, after 1.5 hours it transforms into black mirror of the contemporary reality saying us that this is a hard time, this is a time of culture decline of extremely new kind, but there is not anything lost, there were always difficult periods in our personal lives and in live of the entire society in general, however we continue to lighting from inside and always can make our dreams come true as well as make the world better. Surely, when were there easy times for us? Two world wars, several economic criseses, several revolutions around the world, but "c'est la vie", the "circo" continues to live and even when it wil seem like died, it will continue to live.
It is a movie about how love and passion turns into hate and feelingness after years. How people are being changed after ages, on the other side, and how similarly they spend their lives in their desire to become a little happier, how similarly they die and how strongly they want to not to lost chance to leave after themselves a new generation which will continue the tryings of making this world better. And it is not important if they will not able to do this, because there is no another option - it is the only one thing we can do - try to make the world a little better, as we see it, in other words, continue the life, in other case there is no possibility to exist as a human.
And as we can see, there is no possibility to make something without a pain - Chuck Palahniuk wrote that "Great writers are great disabled" - because only with the costs of the big pain it is possible to create a big invention. Always it seems like the next war will be the last, but it is not so, because there always will be needed to "make the circus better" so the next generations will always need to suffer, not only we or those who were before us. And it is not possible to say that it is good or bad just "C'est La Vie".
