Summary In this pseudo-documentary Fellini's fascination with the circus and the surreal come to a head. The film reflects Fellini's childhood obsession with clowns and begins with a young boy watching a circus set up from his bedroom window. Though comical and referred to as a "docu-comedy," this film also explores deeper human conditions such as authority, poverty, humility, and arrogance.
