Time Out says
Thu Oct 19 2006This minimalist, verité-style fly-on-the-wall doc is so dull you may not make it to the end. It follows a family of circus entertainers through several Italian towns but, aside from one interesting knife-throwing scene, it mostly focuses on their lives from within the confines of their caravan. There’s no descriptive narrative, the takes are interminably long, the conversations are mundane, there’s no soundtrack whatsoever and the inexplicably long fade-to-black gaps between scenes suggest it was edited on mogadon.
