Of all the working relationships you could imagine, few can be closer than that between a circus knife-thrower and the assistant who allows him, or more usually herself, to be the target around which he hurls his blades. That's the nature of the bond between the two characters in the likeable French drama The Girl On The Bridge: Gabor, a down-on-his-luck knife-thrower, and Adele, who he finds about to throw herself off a bridge into Paris' River Seine - and who then joins his act. As the pair hit the road together, the story that unfolds is low-key - but absorbing and sweet all the same.
One of the first real horror movies, Freaks is still disturbing and provocative almost a century after it was made.
