Javier, a Sad Clown, finds work in a circus where he befriends an outlandish cast of characters, including the brutish Happy Clown Sergio, who humiliates Javier daily in the name of entertainment. It is here that he meets Natalia, a gorgeous acrobat, and abused wife of Sergio. Javier falls deeply in love with Natalia and tries to rescue her from her cruel and violent husband, unleashing Sergio's jealousy. With neither man willing to back down, this twisted love triangle evolves into a ferocious battle between Sad Clown and Happy Clown, escalating to unbelievable heights in this absurd, shocking, irreverent and unforgettable film.

GreenCine Daily REVIEW: Think clowns are funny? Do you? They're not funny at all. They are brutal f**king monsters. Behind the pancake makeup and the exaggerated swoosh of funhouse red they call lips, these circus jesters might as well be rapists, serial killers, terrorists - every peal of laughter they provoke from a delighted child a hollow lie. At least, that's how it is in The Last Circus, which testifies long and loud that director Álex de la Iglesia was likely molested by one of these bulbous nosed, smiley-faced nightmares as a small boy. If not, well, he's just molested us. Full article >>.
