A chaotic, melancholy homage to alternative theater that fizzes with the spirit of period transgression - Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter

Winning all the major prizes at the recent Rio Festival, the story takes place at the tail-end of Military dictatorship, where a group of artists who begin to challenge power and moral conventions surface. The Star-Spangled Floor are an anarchist theatre group with subversive and avant-garde cabaret shows practicing political resistance through anarchy and mockery. The group refers to themselves as the “Moulin Rouge of the outskirts, the Broadway of the poor, the Studio 54 of the slums”. “Loose and ebullient, Tattoo sees worlds collide as the omnisexual leader of the troupe falls in love with an 18-year-old soldier serving Brazil’s military dictatorship. With a gender-blurred atmosphere of glitter, nudity and impudence right out of The Cockettes, the features primary club setting establishes a tenor both transgressive and innocent.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety
