Review

A black clown of a traveling circus theater Chocolat is teamed with a white clown Foottit for clown comedy and gains huge success in the French show business. Chocolat gets tired of his stereotyped role as a victim of white and tries to diversify his roles. The prejudiced world doesn’t accept his attempts. The film is a dramatic representation of the first black circus artist in France, Chocolat. A French actor and filmmaker ZEM, who is from Algeria, wrote screenplay based on his minority identity. It is more of a life story with the light and dark of show business than a biography. The film is full of interesting spectacles with great performance of Omar Sy Untouchable(2011). (JANG Byungwon)
