From Terry Gilliam, director of Time Bandits and Brazil, comes The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, a spectacular epic fantasy quite unlike any other film ever made.
Just who is Baron Munchausen? Liar? Rogue? Madman? Or the greatest superhero ever to battle and triumph against unbeatable odds?
Did he really ride through the air on a cannonball, slay a three-headed griffin, journey to the moon and all before breakfast...? Helped and hindered, by a supporting cast of literally thousands, including Vulcan (Oliver Reed), Bertholdt (Eric Idle) and many more, the indomitable Baron (John Neville) succeeds in overcoming every obstacle to face his final, greatest challenge... Death itself.
Hilarious, outrageous and utterly intoxicating, The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen is a wonderful adventure that will take you from the surface of the moon to the depths of the sea. Director Terry Gilliam (The Brothers Grimm, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) and an all-star cast including John Neville, Eric Idle, and Uma Thurman deliver this spectacular tale of an aristocrat trying to save a town from defeat, armed only with his imagination and a crackpot band of henchmen. Nominated for four Oscars and with stunning special effects, The Adventures Of Barn Munchausen is an unmissable comedy experience.
