MISTER UNIVERSO

TIZZA COVI Y RAINER FRIMMEL

Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel | Austria, Italy | 2016 | 90 min. | V.O. Italian subtitled in Spanish and English

Tairo Caroli (who was one of the secondary characters in La Pivellina) is a young lion tamer for whom everything seems to be going wrong: one of his animals dies and another of them is uncontrollable. Unable to continue with his act, and blaming his bad luck on the disappearance of his iron bar, a lucky charm he has treasured since childhood, he takes to the road to get it back. To do this, he has to find Arthur Tobin, the strongman Mister Universe, capable of bending another strip of metal for him. Various halts along the way take us through the trailers of a whole circus community, non-actors from Covi and Frimmel’s humanist hybrid of fiction and documentary.
