The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
- 2 hr 6 min
A lavish and delightful comedic epic from former Pythoner Terry Gilliam, the film follows the outlandish adventures of the titular Baron Munchausen (John Neville). Set in a fictional European city during the 1700s, the fierce Turks are at the gates and only the Baron, a seemingly feeble elderly man, is capable of saving the city. With only a small girl (Sarah Polley) who believes in him they must set out to find his brave friends who have been scattered to the winds and even to the Moon. Growing younger with every adventure is the Baron real and will he succeed?
