A man washes up on a sun-kissed desert island that teems with colourful nature. A vivid and moving fable, told through gorgeous imagery and a stirring score.

In rural French circuses in 1897, Cuban Rafael Padilla startles audiences as the clown ‘Chocolat’. But Padilla is so much more than a willing fallguy. A vibrant film that enlightens as it entertains.

A joyous, laugh-outloud film so continually surprising that it has become the talk of film festivals from Cannes to Melbourne. A constant, head-spinning delight.
