Bingo: The King of the Mornings

An actor becomes a TV clown sensation but can't reveal his true identity.


Why watch this film?

Based on the true story of actor Arlindo Barreto, who played the clown Bozo in the mornings of SBT in the 1980s. Even though he was unable to use the real character and TV stations, the production signed by Daniel Rezende manages to capture the spirit of that time. Special mention also for Vladimir Brichta's performance in the role of the protagonist. It is certainly one of the best Brazilian films of 2017.
