Around a Small Mountain

86 minutes

A charming Italian helps a woman repair her broken down car and, seduced by her mystery, decides to follow her around, discovering she works in an rundown itinerant circus. Playful, stylised romantic comedy where the slight plot is a mere excuse for a joyous yet melancholy meditation on life and art.
