With Sean Connery, Craig Warnock, David Rappaport, Kenny Baker, Jack Purvis, Mike Edmonds, Malcolm Dixon, Tiny Ross, Ian Holm, David Warner, Ralph Richardson, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Katherine Helmond, Shelly Duvall
Directed by Terry Gilliam

With the backing of ex-
Beatles guitarist George Harrison's Hand Made Films, Gilliam (the only American) in the Monty Python team, further bloomed into his inimitable directing and visual style after Holy Grail and Jabberwocky with this incredible time traveling romp. A young boy is flung into the adventure of his life when a gang of dwarves (who stole a map of the universe from God), use time holes to zip in and out of different historic points to steal great treasures and make a getaway to another era before caught. This is an absolute ball with a great sense of humour on top of the fantastic storytelling and unique execution. A timeless movie (ha-ha!) not to be missed.
