Through a participatory and crazy circus show, Jacques Tati brings his pantomimes to life with musicians, jugglers, magicians and acrobats, becoming Mr. Loyal, master of ceremonies of the Stockholm Cirkus.  

 

Zafarrancho en el circo resonates as a joyous tribute to the live show and recalls the beginnings in the musical hall of the great artist.

 

Tati, with an extensive acting career, was one of the most unique filmmakers of all time,  that renewed the comic genre while offering a lucid look at  the dehumanization of modern societies.  

 

Jacques Tati was also one of the most unique filmmakers of all time,  that renewed the comic genre while offering a lucid look at  the dehumanization of modern societies. He is also a critical observer of modernity, consumer society, life  daily life and the historical and social evolution of France and Europe from the end of the Second World War to the 1970s.
