Sam, a low-level functionary, does not care for his career in the bureaucratic and totalitarian society he is living in, or for the war waged by a terrorist group and the ruthless police force. He spends his nights (and big part of dull days) dreaming and seems quite happy about this lifestyle, until one day he meets a woman who appears in his dreams. From this moment, he will do whatever necessary to find this woman.

Brazil is directed by Terry Gillian. The film, although loosely based On George Orwell's “1984” retains Month y Python's visual appearance and gags, while telling a hardcore sci-fi story.
The review of this Movie prepared by Vladimir Kokorev
In Terry Gilliam's marvelous portrait of a not-too-distant dystopia, things are breaking down while the government tries to keep an Orwellian grip on information. Pryce is an unremarkable government functionary who discovers a bureaucratic error and in trying to correct it becomes an enemy of the state. He fantasizes about flying away from technology and control to the woman of his dreams. Eventually he meets her, but under less-than-ideal circumstances as the full weight of the government (especially his smooth-sinister former friend played by Michael Palin) comes down on him. Lots of lovely details in this funny-unsettling movie, from Pryce's plastic surgery-loving mum to De Niro's refreshing cameo as a Spiderman-like terrorist. Ian Holm and Bob Hoskins also have disquieting cameos. Writer-director Terry Gilliam, a Monty Python vet, was after more serious game with this film, and he had an epic battle with Universal Studios chair Sidney Sheinberg to keep a stupid happy ending from being tacked onto his bleak creation.
