Sawdust And Tinsel

SF Film

Among the real connoisseurs, this film is considered one of the finest gems; an early, expressionistic master-piece. Vibrantly vital, rule-breaking, paving the way for the establishing of Swedish film as Art... The story centres around a small, run down circus company, touring the south of Sweden in very early 1920s. Every day is a fight for survival, for food, shelter and human dignity. Under the circus canvas a wide variety of human feelings are also exhibited: passion, wrath, envy, jealousy, failure, endurance, humiliation, pride and the blessing of good laughter. One day, when the circus puts down its tent-pegs in the home town of Albert, the director, the result is a performance, never to be forgotten.
