    • Synopsis
    • On the outskirts of Paris, there's a circus tent, and in that tent lives a stern, compassionate, 21-year-old trapeze artist named Camille. Meanwhile, out in the streets is a stubborn, drunken homeless man. He's the father of Spartacus, age 13, and Cassandra, age 10. After the government's child services branch intervenes, these young Roma siblings must acclimate to life with the tough-loving Camille while trying to figure out what to do about their unreliable, reckless father, who seeks to leave the country. Firsttime director Ioanis Nuguet's enthralling debut latches onto its creative, charismatic protagonists and tells their story in a collaborative fashion. The audacious, inspired result vibrates with life, deftly alternating nail-bitingly tense scenes with glorious, impressionistic montage.
