Best Drama Movies of 1935 : Five Men in a Circus

Five Men in a Circus

6.6/10 IMDB

The main focus is on the 5 member band of a small circus as it runs into problems while touring rural Japan. It also pays lots of attention to the two daughters of the aging and irascible ringmaster-circus owner. The high points are the sound (and score) and cinematography featuring a lot of vertiginous panning (appropriate - as high wire trapeze artists are also an important element in the film). A fascinating side-light on 30s Japan.

Starring: Heihachirô Ôkawa, Hiroshi Uruki, Kamatari Fujiwara, Riki Miyagawa, Ko Mihashi, Sadao Maruyama, Koji Kaga, Kajiya Morino, Masako Tsutsumi, Ryuko Umezono ..
