Storyline

Centered on a post-apocalyptic society where food is scarce and used as currency. In an apartment building with a delicatessen on the ground floor. The owner of the eatery also owns the apartment building and is in need of a new maintenance man since the prior one “mysteriously” disappeared. A former clown applies for the job and the butcher’s intent is to have him work for as little as possible. The clown and butcher’s daughter fall in love and she tries to foil her father’s plans by contacting the “troglodytes”, a grain eating sub-group of society who live entirely underground

  • Why you should see that movie :

A film about people, relationships, feelings, gestures, reactions, answers to the reactions of the other, absurd, chaotic, without coherence; Not surprising because it is only a film about ordinary people living together.
A dark comedy, a childish game who seems be more improvisation, it is a strange artistic delight and this is its basic virtue to be an open door to an universe who mix love story with savage habits, food with eccentricity , fear with a sort of carnival. So, a show about simple people who is more expression of imagination, seductive for the puzzle of images, great for the references to the world of circus, great for the delicate portrait of hidden aspects of life, taboos. A form of experiment and this is its significant good point.
