Directed by Viktor Taus

Czech Republic 2013 120 mins.

Oskar, Max, and Viktor, once a superstar clown trio, split up over a heartbreaking fight. Now they’re paying the price after thirty years of separate grueling lives on and off the stage. Their irresistible sense of humor is challenged by the proximity of the physical end and other joys of old age. They’re about to risk everything to find out whether there is one more show left in them, a re-staging of the famous clownery that launched the group’s career while also facing the hardest challenge yet: clowning their way out. A splendid tale of the comedy of life.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
