Overview
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 Baron Munchausen is an unmissable comedy experience.
