Freaks Out

Gabriele Mainetti | IT/BE 2020 | 141 Min | DCP

Rome, 1943: After bombs rain down on a circus Fascist Italy, its entertainers must fend for themselves in. Matilda, the girl who can make light bulbs glow with her body, joins the partisans, while her supernatural friends—among them an insect whisperer and a human magnet—sign with a different show: Zirkus Berlin is helmed by twelve-fingered pianist Franz (Rogowski), who seeks out freaks with whom he wants to help the Nazis win the war. FREAKS OUT is an irreverent mix of fantasy and war movie, pure magic and brute force.
