UK PREMIERE -
If Fellini directed Schindler’s List as a superhero adventure the result would be this astonishing epic fantasy extravaganza from Gabriele Mainetti, director of the Italian blockbuster They Call Me Jeeg Robot. In 1943, four circus freaks – Electric Girl Matilde, albino insect controller Cencio, super-strong Manbeast Fulvio and metal manipulator Mario – are tempted to join the Berlin Zircus, on tour in Nazi occupied Rome. Run by six-fingered pianist Franz, his clairvoyant powers have witnessed Hitler’s downfall, and he has identified the tight-knit group as the key players to help his depraved plan to change the future fortunes of the Third Reich.
War crimes, disability violence, racism, bloody action.
