Synopsis

It's time to take a trip into the bonkers realm of strange showman Dr Parnassus, in this colourful feature from renowned fantasy filmmaker Terry Gilliam. Performing on the backstreets of modern London, the good doctor and his clunky carnival sideshow specialise in making their audiences' dreams come true. Trouble is, not only is business dreadful but he's also in debt with the Devil. So as the date approaches to hand over the soul of his daughter, Parnassus co-opts a stranger to help him solve his problems. Cleverly shot and brilliantly over-the-top, this will probably be best remembered as the swan song of Heath Ledger who sadly died before filming ended.
