The critical consensus

Enjoyable if fairly repetitive documentary focusing on old-school entertainment.

The anonymous performers from so long ago show both bravery and, often, startling balletic grace. It's very eerie to watch.

Icelandic director Benedikt Erlingsson binds archive footage together with a stunning Sigur Rós soundtrack to evoke all the fun of the fair.
