    Seen it:

    A bridge between reality and fiction, adaptation of Aglaja Veteranyi’s autobiographical book follows a family of circus artists who flee the Communist regime in Romania in the hope of establishing a better life in the West. Among the caravans and the circus tents a family are caught between two worlds: the colourful,transfiguring high-top where the mother performs her death-defying stunts and the harsher reality of a nomadic life, where home is only to be found in your mother’s cooking. Told from the perspective of the youngest child, this lyrical darkly comic tale is the story of a familyalways on the road and always the foreigners.
