Trailer: The Last Circus

von Alex am 21.07.2011   |   Sonstiges

Hier der Trailer zu The Last Circus (Balada triste de trompeta), dem neuen Film von Regisseur Alex de la Iglesia, in dem es um mordende Clowns(!) geht. Der Trailer sieht ziemlich verrückt aus, was mir aber ziemlich gut gefällt, mag ich doch seine anderen Filme (u. a. La Communidad, El día de la Bestia, Crimen Ferpecto) sehr.

1937, Spain is in the midst of the brutal Spanish Civil War. A „Happy“ circus clown is interrupted mid-performance and forcibly recruited by a militia. Still in his costume, he is handed a machete and led into battle against National soldiers, where he single handedly massacres an entire platoon. This absurd and disturbing scenario raises the curtain on a twisted tale of love, revenge, and psychopathic clowns that could only spring from the mind of filmmaker Álex de la Iglesia.

Fast forward to 1973, the tail end of the Franco regime. Javier, the son of the clown, dreams of following in his father’s career footsteps, but has seen too much tragedy in his life – he’s simply not funny and is only equipped to play the role of the Sad Clown. He finds work in a circus where he befriends an outlandish cast of characters, but as the Sad Clown he must take the abuse of the brutish Happy Clown Sergio, who humiliates Javier daily in the name of entertainment.

Das sieht nach bodenständiger Filmkunst wie ich sie mag aus.
