Storyline

Toby, a cynical but supposedly genius film director finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth - a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

Follows the soul of the book!
11 September 2018 | by Darth_OsmosisSee all my reviews

It's interesting to say the least. At first it might seem to be heading in a quite weird direction and be somewhat crazy, but then you'll understand it is going in a great direction and it's totally crazy! Maintains the themes of magic, illusionment and disillusionment very well and has that great sense of humor only Gilliam seems to manage. Jonathan Pryce is amazing as the Don! Wonderful movie!
