Starring Jonathan Pryce, Bob Hoskins & Robert De Niro and directed by Terry Gilliam, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is proud to announce that Brazil is available to own for the first time on Blu-ray from the 5th December 2011.
Set in an unidentified country, the film follows Sam Lowry, a low-level government employee who has frequent daydreams of saving a beautiful maiden. One day he is assigned the task of trying to rectify an error caused by a fly getting jammed in a printer, which caused it to misprint a file, resulting in the incarceration and death during interrogation of Mr. Archibald "Harry" Buttle instead of the suspected terrorist, Archibald "Harry" Tuttle.
When Sam visits Buttle's widow, he discovers Jill Layton, the upstairs neighbour of the Buttles, is the same woman as in his dreams. Jill is trying to help Mrs. Buttle find out what happened to her husband, but has become sick of dealing with the bureaucracy. Unbeknownst to her, she is now considered a terrorist friend of Tuttle for attempting to report the mistake of Buttle's arrest in Tuttle's place to bureaucrats that would not admit such an error. When Sam tries to approach her, she is very cautious and avoids giving Sam full details, worried the government will track her down. During this time, Sam comes in contact with the real Harry Tuttle (De Niro), a renegade air conditioning specialist who once worked for the government but left due to the amount of paperwork. Tuttle helps Sam deal with two government workers who are taking their time fixing the broken air conditioning in Sam's apartment.
Brazil has never looked and sounded better having now been restored and remastered in HD to be released on Blu-ray from 5th December 2011.
