An exuberant, vivid fantasy about a suburban boy who joins a group of renegade time-traveling dwarves. Together they plunder and loot their way from era to era, encountering the likes of Agamemnon, Napoleon, and Robin Hood along the way. Funny and offbeat with convincing homemade special effects, this piece of movie magic was written and directed by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam.

In one of enfant terrible Francois Ozon’s quieter, more sensitive films, an elegantly aged Jeanne Moreau does what she can to comfort a young fashion photographer with a terminal illness while sharing her own thoughts about living and dying. Moreau still stuns, even in her late 70s, in this meditative look at forgotten memories and final decisions.
