Blue Blood is quite a story in the already full-of-stories life at a brazilian circus, and it happens when Circo Netuno returns to a volcanic archipelago two hundred miles off Brazil’s northeast coast. The film centers on the Cannon Man, an attractive young man who returns home to find the years have not diminished the taboo attraction between him and his sister. Director Lirio Ferreira has create a film full of theatrical sequences, the camera with its ups, downs, and around-movements, like the circus acts. Some say Ferreira has a Fellini touch.
