This is the first live sneak peek of Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassusâ€Ž.Â It looks very imaginative, magical and fun just like Alice in Wonderland.
Lily Cole plays Valentina, daughter of Doctor Parnassus who’s played by Christopher Plummer. Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell take turns as Tony.
THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. It tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his extraordinary â€˜Imaginarium\’, a traveling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Doctor Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. An inveterate gambler, thousands of years ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr. Nick, in which he won immortality. Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr. Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his daughter reached her 16th birthday, she would become the property of Mr. Nick.
