Between "King Kong" and "Monty Python, Sacred Grail"... but better!

When his father dies, young Dennis decides to try his luck in town in the hope of winning the heart of his sweetheart, Griselda, who has remained in the village. Meanwhile, a horrible monster nicknamed Jabberwocky reigns terror, killing and obliterating everything in its path. Seeing his kingdom threatened, King Bruno the Contestable promises his daughter's hand to whoever will defeat the beast...

With Jabberwocky , Terry Gilliam signs his first solo film, even if a large part of Monty Python appears in the cast. The member of the emblematic comedy troupe and future director of Brazil and The Army of the 12 Monkeys delivers a tasty and wildly inventive fantastico-medieval comedy, inspired by a poem by Lewis Carroll. A pure marvel with absurd and fantastic humor, to discover for the 1st time in a superb 4K restored version supervised by the BFI National Archive and The Film Foundation, approved by Terry Gilliam!
