Once upon a time, Toby was an idealistic young film student. His great achievement, a lyrical re-working of the Don Quixote story, set in a quaint old Spanish village. But that was then; these days he is a jaded, arrogant and over-sexed commercials director. Money and glamour have derailed him, and now he juggles his boss’s wife Jacqui, a biblical storm and his own ego, as he tries to complete a new commercial shoot in Spain

"After a three-decade production ordeal Gilliam has delivered a sun-baked fable of money, madness and the movie business – and done so with trademark infectious charm" - The Guardian.
