One of Terry Gilliam's greatest, and the first film I have done preformed in my native language. The film takes place in a dystopian society, where all anybody cares about is their credit score and what they will buy for Christmas. The film follows Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce), who works a dead end job in the Ministry of Information and is plagued by frequent day-dreams of saving beutiful maidens.

Sam gets caught up in a government mix up when he meets what he thinks to be the love of his life and a suspected terrorist, and thats about all I can tell you without ruining the rest of the movie for you. Just watch it, its really good!

This film is a funny and slapstick humor filled attack on capitolism and governmental buracracy. Once Sam is even told to "Confess or this will serously damage your credit score." The film does bring about a few great points on how the western civilizations might be losing what really maters in life, not botox but love and human relationships.

All in all I'd give this movie a 7.5 out of 10. Some parts do tend to drag, but the beutiful set designs and the wonderful music compositions and top knoch acting leads to great entertainment.
