  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Wrestler and the Clown

    Un grand metteur en scène (Boris Barnet) hélas méconnu, pour une comédie dramatique longtemps inédite sur les écrans de l'Hexagone. Une oeuvre mineure pourtant dans la filmographie du réalisateur... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Wrestler and the Clown

    Director Yudin must either have gotten sick or died during filmmaking, so Barnet is officially the second co-director. But this one has a very Barnet shine to it: a dancing pace, good-natured characters (a sad, brilliant clown and a gentle giant), no overt propaganda (though we may conclude that Russian wrestlers are best), and as is so very often the case with Barnet, it's fun as hell and quite lovely to see.
