Powerful, not to be missed. THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN (PG) John Neville, Robin Williams Based on the legend of an 18th Century super-hero, who toured embattled Europe in a balloon, Gilliam lets his surreal imagination run free with impish glee.

She was found guilty of murder but was later cleared. Part horror, part courtroom drama. A FISH CALLED WANDA (15) John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Cline A wonderful, surreal blend of romance and blackest humour.
