Storyline

Twenty two years ago, an arid, volcanic and island paradise nestled in the middle of the South Atlantic, a nine year old boy was separated from his sister. The mother, fearful of a forbidden attraction between them, decides to send his son, not daughter, for the continent. The boy was taken by Kaleb, the rider of an old circus, passing by the island. On the mainland, Kaleb instructed the boy in circus arts and spirit, where the former islet became Zolah the Bullet Man. BLUE BLOOD begins when Zolah and the circus back to paradise. The circus is established as an island within an island, and the most solitary of these isles Zolah himself, a beautiful man who seduces everyone and everything, yet remains deeply lonely, because he could not love anyone. BLUE BLOOD is a film about the sea, the circus and the impossibility of love.

Poor film
21 April 2017 | by metal-427-115348See all my reviews

I though Lirio Ferreira would be a good director. I have listen many good references of is work. Sangue Azul was the first film I saw. But I was very unsatisfied. As the other review says very beautiful images, but no story, no tension and a lot of deplorable small circus scenes, as to fulfill the film time. Also the homosexual relation of the "strong" circus man has no reason in the history. Very, very poor film.
