Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (Blu-ray)
Fantasy adventure directed by Terry Gilliam. Christopher Plummer stars as Dr Parnassus, leader of the extraordinary Imaginarium: a travelling theatre where members of the audience are given the irresistible opportunity to go beyond reality by means of a magical mirror and explore the limitless realms of their imaginations.
But despite his amazing gift for guiding the imaginations of others, Parnassus harbours a dark secret: years before he made a pact with the devil in order to buy himself immortality.
When the devil appears to collect his payment – Parnassus’s beautiful 16-year-old daughter Valentina (Lily Cole) – Parnassus and his troupe, now joined by the mysterious shape-shifting Tony (variously portrayed by Heath Ledger, in his last ever performance, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell), embark on a wild and surreal journey through parallel worlds to save the girl and undo the mistakes of the past.
