French maestro Jacques Rivette directs Jane Birkin in this comedy-drama about a woman who returns to a small provincial circus.

Our take

The very last film by Jacques Rivette, the most consistently underrated of the French New Wave critics-turned-filmmakers (a group which includes François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard), Around a Small Mountain is a wry, gentle gem starring 60s icon Jane Birkin.
