Balada triste de trompeta
ALEX DE LA IGLESIA
SPAIN/FRANCE, 2010, 35mm, VO ST FR & NL OND, 107’
During the Franco dictatorship in Spain a bloody battle enfolds between two clowns, a happy and a sad one, for the love of a beautiful trapeze artist. De la Iglesia wraps this allegorical melodrama in a pitch black horror extravaganza full of excessive violence, bigger-then-life caricatures and grotesque set pieces.
