The wait is finally over - director's Terry Gilliam's wildest dream has finally come true!
Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Jonathan Pryce) 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?
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has one of the longest and most tortuous development stories in film-making history. Yet the fact that the picture has finally been completed, almost 30 years after its origin, is a remarkable achievement, resulting from the persistence, passion and inspiration of director Terry Gilliam - the successful completion of the film represents Gilliam’s tenth attempt at making it.
