Plot synopsis
Chapiteau-show is a film dealing with how people’s relationship reflect on their social intercourse and bonding – telling how tragically everything tend to seem from within, and how comical it really looks from the outside. The protagonists of the four stories told in the movie are connected to each other to a greater or lesser extent – some of them are acquainted in real life, other tend to communicate in different networks. Each one of them is living through his own, private drama not noticing what’s happening to other people. Each one of them delivers his own accusatory speech not knowing that the words he’s pronouncing are not really his. Their dramas deal with different types of human relationships – love, friendship, respect or cooperation, but all of these stories are evolving simultaneously. And the tempest in the soul of one character will reflect with a tempest in the soul of another. The action takes place far away from Moscow – on a sea shore, against serene scenery and beautiful rugged mountains. In the moments of crisis characters find themselves on the stage of a mystery gilly theater where each of them can sing his “swansong”.

Director's Statement :
All the characters in this film are beautiful losers. Their views on life are unique, unorthodox bordering on strange and irrational. Their naivety, childish inability to deal with the complexity of human relationships leads puts them into absurd situations. And of course they manage and win in the end.
