Brazil (Motion picture)

This 94 minute version of Brazil, rearranged in the hope of making the film commercial, stands as a fascinating document to the power of editing to change a picture. Everything is different in this version, the only Brazil not cut by the director, Terry Gilliam. Sometimes known as the syndicated television version, it includes all the cuts and changes Gilliam refused to make, from the alternate opening to the infamous happy ending.

  • "A wacky Orwellian comedy about a future society in which technology reigns supreme and everyone is constantly monitored by the government. Love and feelings are strictly forbidden."@en
  • "A surrealistic nightmare vision of a "perfect" future society where technology reigns supreme. Everyone is monitored by a secret government agency that forbids love to interfere with efficiency. And so, when a daydreaming bureaucrat becomes involved with an underground superhero and a beautiful mysterious woman, he becomes the tragic victim of his own romantic illusions."
  • "Dans une mégapole ultra moderne, où chaque citoyen n'est plus qu'un rouage dans l'immense machine bureaucratique, Sam Lowry, fonctionnaire modèle, se trouve confronté à toute l'absurdité du système, à cause d'un cafard tombé dans un ordinateur."

  • "The Orwellian world of Sam Lowry, a man seeking escape through fabulous dreams from grey, soul-destroying bureaucracy, begins to fragment when he meets the very real, and very rebellious, woman of his fantasies. With freedom fighting engineers, direct debit state torture, and a woman who melts from too much plastic surgery, this is Gilliam's finest hour, perfectly complemented by a script co-written with Tom Stoppard. Compassionate lunacy, with images of startling power and perhaps most incredibly, a thoroughly evil Michael Palin."@en

  • "Dans un état totalitaire dirigé par des machines, Sam Lowry, employé sans ambition du Ministère de l'Information, trouve un échappatoire à sa morne vie en rêvant. A la suite d'une erreur informatique à l'issue dramatique, il se trouve malgré lui plongé dans une course-poursuite infernale au cours de laquelle il trouvera la femme de ses rêves et combattra la dictature de l'Etat en réalisant les pires folies."
  • "Ispirato a 1984 di George Orwell e diretto da un membro dei Monty Python, Brazil (che è il titolo della famosa canzone degli anni Quaranta simbolo di evasione) è una bizzarra e straripante metafora contro le dittature in nome della libertà. Il portavoce è Sam Lowry, addetto agli archivi del Dipartimento informazioni in un paese del futuro dominato dal potere e dalla burocrazia dove gruppi di terroristi seminano distruzione per reagire all'oppressione. In seguito ad imprevisti e a strani incontri (un idraulico che si oppone al sistema riparando abusivamente nelle case, interpretato da De Niro), Sam si scopre vocazioni di oppositore e di terrorista, ma verrà reso innocuo. (Mymovies)."
  • "Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world - both in terms of population and geography. Over 192 million people call this land their home. Taking up over half of South America, Brazil is a mix of races, religions, sophistication, wildness, wealth, poverty and unexplored wilderness. The country is considered one of the rising global powers with Vast natural resources, a burgeoning industrial base and a strong currency. In this programme Michael Palin visits Brazil for the very first time, travelling from the lost world of Amazonia to the buzzing metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, to meet the people and visit the places that shape this nation.
