The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen

A spectacular film fantasy, based on the legendary exploits of the fictional Baron Münchhausen, this escapist extravaganza (which was commissioned by Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels) is simply an excuse for a series of surreal episodes: the Baron's adventures take him from the opulent court of Catherine the Great, via a Turkish sultan's harem and Venice's Grand Canal, to the surreal landscape of the moon.
