Olivier Meyrou & Matias Pilet - Le Monfort
runs with his belongings strapped to his back. As a vagabond, a fugitive, a
refugee both yesterday and today, he incessantly faces the obstacles life
throws on his path. Filmmaker and director Olivier Meyrou concocted a type of
circus that reinvents the clown from the golden era of silent movies.
Spectators of all ages will laugh as something falls on his head, amused by his
frailty while marveling at his ability to escape sticky situations.
Pilet infuses innocence in his graceful portrayal of the battered hero.
Switching between acrobatics, mime and dance, he excels despite limited
resources - a tent, the sounds of a rowdy
piano, suggestive noise – and delivers a moving and captivating performance.
little gem of a circus act!
