The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python's resident animator, the delightfully inventive children's fantasy Time Bandits, released on Blu-ray by Arrow Films on 19th August 2013 with a brand new 2k-resolution restoration of the film, is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs.

Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin's benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)?

At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

  • Brand new 2k-resolution restoration of the film from the original camera negative, approved by director and co-writer Terry Gilliam
