¡Dispara! (1993)

[Carlos Saura film; Antonio Banderas, Francesca Neri, Walter Vidarte, Eulalia Ramón]

Spain/Italy. Also known as "Shoot!" and "Outrage." Cynical newshound Marco Vallez (Antonio Banderas) discovers his latent romantic instincts stirred at the circus by Italian-born sharpshooter Ana (Francesca Neri). They commence an affair, but while Marco toils out of town on assignment Ana is brutally raped by three itinerant laborers. Badly injured and still in shock, Ana tracks down the trio to a garage and cold-bloodedly guns them down. Hunted by police and pilloried in the tabloids, Ana nearly runs down a child, then takes the boy's family hostage in their home. Pressured by his editor to put a personal spin on the now-notorious Ana's standoff, reporter Marco refuses and races to save his lover's life.

There's a juggler on a unicycle in one scene.
