Abstract:

The Orwellian world of Sam Lowry, a man seeking escape through fabulous dreams from grey, soul-destroying bureaucracy, begins to fragment when he meets the very real, and very rebellious, woman of his fantasies. With freedom fighting engineers, direct debit state torture, and a woman who melts from too much plastic surgery, this is Gilliam's finest hour, perfectly complemented by a script co-written with Tom Stoppard. Compassionate lunacy, with images of startling power and perhaps most incredibly, a thoroughly evil Michael Palin.
