TIME BANDITS

1981 / 116min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: TERRY GILLIAM

CAST: JOHN CLEESE, SEAN CONNERY, SHELLEY DUVALL, KATHERINE HELMOND

Director Gilliam’s second feature is a lavish concoction of wild and wicked fancy. One fateful night Kevin, an 11-year-old with a passion for history, discovers a time-and-space portal in his bedroom wall and a gaggle of dwarves who teach him how to use it, paying visits to Ian Holm’s Napoleon, John Cleese’s Robin Hood, Sean Connery’s King Agamemnon, and the land of unbounded imagination that is the Time of Legend. A fractured fairy tale that thrilled and delighted every kid who saw it.
