A shy young woman finds herself involved in a forbidden romance with a twist — her object of desire is Jumbo, the local carnival’s tilt-a-whirl ride.
Noémie Merlant, fresh from her leading role in Portrait of a Lady on Fire 2019, plays Jeanne, an introvert who takes a job as the overnight cleaner at her French town’s funfair. While her vivacious single mother pressures her to romance the park’s manager, Jeanne realises she only has eyes for Jumbo, the carnival’s flashy new attraction that lights up her life. This slick and stylish debut feature from Zoé Wittock takes a wild new approach to the story of star-crossed lovers.
