Augusto becomes an anonymous celebrity and the man behind the clown mask. With makeup on, he brings happiness to children across the country but not to his own son Gabriel, that sees his father distancing himself in search of recognition. Filled with irony and humour and an exaggerated pop look from the backstage universe of the Brazilian 80’s television, the film tells the incredible and surreal story of a man that whilst looking for his artistic value, finds his personal decay.
“An enthrallingly seedy rise-and-fall tale in the Scorsese mode…Brichta, whose Joker smile is so dazzlingly broad…is a captivating actor.”
SIGHT & SOUND
“Dripping with 80’s neon, drugs and clown sex, it’s Boogie Nights with funny shoes.”
