Calimucho Feature film, 2008, 93 min.

In several respects, Circus Harlekino experiences a turbulent summer. Dicky and her brother-in-law Willy are in a pretty kettle of fish. Dicky's sister has passed on and left little Timo behind. Dicky raises Timo as if it were her own child, but father Willy and his family had rather seen him put up in a boarding school. Dicky has no rights, so she has to stand by and watch how Willy makes one wrong choice after the other and everybody keeps meddling. Meanwhile, she starts entertaining amorous feelings for tent builder Tarek. Shot in documentary style, this drama deals with complicated mutual relationships in an unusual environment. Played by real circus performers, the story portrays life in a contemporary circus, onstage and offstage. From knife throwers to a lama between white caravans and a pack of dogs that is taken out in pouring rain. With synthesizer music and songs, three German-speaking musicians from the circus tell the background story of the leading characters.
