I grew up on the songs.
12 November 2019 | by pmtelefonSee all my reviews

I listened to the LP of "The Clown and the Kids" a million times when I was growing up. I loved the songs and I still like them when I here them now. The movie is not nearly as good. It's poorly dubbed and kind of strange looking. I don't want to be mean but there isn't any real acting going on. The circus footage is kind of interesting in a Cold War Eastern Europe kind of way but it's not very entertaining. At the end of the day, "The Clown and the Kids" is a real test of wills between my finger and fast-forward button.
