In an Orwellian future world, a low-level government employee gets caught in a web of bureaucracy when trying to fix a mundane error that leads to the wrongful conviction of an innocent man. Terry Gilliam’s satirical masterpiece has steadily grown to a cult status and is considered a mandatory watch for anyone with a heightened interest in cinema.
Named after the recurring musical theme, Ary Barroso’s “Aquarela do Brasil”, as performed by Geoff Muldaur.
Johnathan Pryce makes his breakthrough screen performance, well supported by a cast including Robert De Niro, Katherine Helmond and Michael Palin.
Memorable set design and costume makes for an unforgettable atmosphere – eclectic and influential. Described by Gilliam as “neither future nor past, and yet a bit of each”.
