About The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen

Director Terry Gilliam (Time Bandits, Brazil, The Fisher King) continues to stretch the limits of the imagination in this mind-bending saga that was nominated for four Academy Awards®. In an 18th century European city besieged by the Turkish army, a theatrical performance of "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" is interrupted by an old man (John Neville) who claims to be the Baron himself. No one believes him except 10-year-old Sally (Sarah Polley), who joins him on a quest to prove his claims and save the city from the Turks. Now they must find the Baron's four closest friends: Albrecht (Winston Dennis), the strongest man on Earth; Berthold (Eric Idle), the fastest man alive; Adolphus (Charles McKeown), who can see farther than a telescope; and Gustavus (Jack Purvis), who can blow harder than a hurricane.
