Born from the brilliant minds of Monty Python's Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, Time Bandits is a British masterstroke in fantasy adventure. When a young boy's wardrobe shapeshifts into the gateway of another world, he finds himself embroiled in a series of eccentric encounters with famous historical figures; Napoleon, Robin Hood and ancient Greek leader, Agamemnon. There, backed by an arsenal of guerrilla dwarves, he must overcome evil forces, quantum leaps in time and 1980's suburban conditioning in order to save history, the present and the future.
Loaded with astutely observed, rapid-fire humour, this critically acclaimed smash-hit remains one of Britain's most-enduring ensemble comedies. Boasting music by George Harrison, who co-produced the film alongside writer/director Gilliam, it stars Academy Award(r)-winners Sean Connery and Jim Broadbent, plus fellow Python's John Cleese and co-writer Michael Palin, in a classic - and timeless - comedy.
