ah! films

“I believe the film world must be analogous to be world of the circus, where the bond between the bearded lady, the lilliputians, the trapeze arists, the clowns, is greater than the one they have with their normal brothers and sisters who live 'civilian' lives away from the circus."
Federico Fellini
