The boundless imagination of Terry Gilliam (Brazil) yields a dazzling fantasy of epic proportions as The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen is given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 30th January 20233 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Inspired by the extravagant exploits of the fabled Baron Munchausen, this spectacle-born of a famously turbulent production-follows the whimsical eighteenth-century nobleman (John Neville; The X-Files) as he embarks on an outlandish quest that takes him from faraway lands to the moon to the belly of a sea monster and beyond, meanwhile waging battle against a vengeful sultan and the tyranny of logic.

Packed frame to frame with special effects, mischievous wit, and colourful performances-including a young Sarah Polley (The Sweet Hereafter) as the Baron's no-nonsense sidekick- the Oscar-nominated The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a lavish celebration of the triumph of make-believe over reality.
