Tizza Covi / Rainer Frimmel. 2016. Italy / Austria. 1hr 30mins. FFF-rated, subtitled
Young, disenchanted lion-tamer Tairo is out to recover his missing lucky talisman - a bar of iron bent into a horseshoe shape and given to him as a 5-yr-old child by ‘Mister Universo’, without which his life is bereft. This fast-moving neo-realist road movie is an engaging, and unusual, hybrid of documentary and fiction, in which real-life circus folk play themselves. In a story full of colour and rough charm, Tairo's quest reunites him with old friends and colleagues and fast becomes a whirlwind tour of Italy's circus culture. Aided by his quiet admirer and contortionist extraordinaire Wendy, the film culminates in a feel-good ending as Tairo finally runs 'Mr Universo' to ground.
“A twisting, rolling great big ball of fun of a movie” – Scene Creek
“…rich with exciting circus imagery that gives the intimate quest an expressionistic backdrop. Both emotionally accessible and cinematic, “Mister Universo” endows its bizarre setting with warmth” – Indiewire
