The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988) DVD9 + DVD5
It is The Age of Reason. Wednesday. The city is under siege by the Sultan. Attempting to forget their troubles and fears, the populace is packed into a theater, watching a traveling company enact The Adventures of Baron von Munchausen. In the middle of the performance, an elderly man cries out in protest, totters down the aisle and onto the stage, and claims that the play is a travesty; he claims to be the real Baron Munchausen (John Neville), and he's here to stop the players from spreading any more lies. Furthermore, he's the only one who can stop the war with the Sultan—because he's the one who started it. As the baron spins his tale, the lines between tale and truth, play and reality—even life and death—begin to blur, as he travels to the Moon, dances with a goddess, and is swallowed by a sea monster in his quest to save the besieged town. When the dust has finally settled and the Baron has ridden off into the sunset, no one is quite sure what has happened—including the viewing audience.
