Been there, done that. While Pickle was pickling, or just before, a few years, my partner and I were creating our own two-person Cirque de Soleil, or mini-pickle circus. More poetry and dance and comedy, and a LOT less juggling and physical skill.... But it was the same idea, like La Strada, but not so sad. I loved this film and do not begrudge young Lorenzo his childhood lost. I think the answer to the question is that he had a wonderful childhood. All things considered...

I will be watching this again tomorrow. I will glean what I can and contemplate a real review. This is not just a sweet little tale of growing up. There is so much more here to learn. Lorenzo is a very brave soul.
