Critic Reviews for Around a Small Mountain

Audience Reviews for Around a Small Mountain

  • Feb 14, 2012
    Even with a relatively brief running time, Jacques Rivette is in no hurry with the deliberate pacing in his latest film, "Around a Small Mountain," as if he is unwilling to say farewell to the dying artform of the traveling circus, this one being sparsely attended. In fact, mortality hangs over the movie, not only with the circus' death defying acts but also in its signature Entrance that the movie keeps returning to. Another way of looking at the circus is like something out of the past like Vittorio's(Sergio Castellitto, also one of the screenwriters) gentlemanly behavior towards Kate(Jane Birkin) in coming to her rescue when she breaks down on the side of the road on the way to return to the circus for the first time in fifteen years.

    Awkwardly stagy, frustratingly talky French drama about a chance encounter at a traveling circus. Often very tedious, but the final shot is a knock out.
