It’s the year 2035. Prisoner James Cole is offered his freedom if he first agrees to participate in a scientific experiment that takes him back in time so that he can gather information about a devastating virus. We then meet Cole, in the year 1990, who is incarcerated in a psychiatric asylum. As Cole plans his escape, he begins to wonder if his mission to the past is not a product of his own delirium. This intense film is inspired by the medium-length cult film, La Jetée by Chris Marker (1962), a science fiction classic.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Dr. Parnassus, an immortal who made a pact with the devil, takes his traveling theater company to the street offering a marvelous spectacle: entering an imaginary world where dreams come true. No one knows that every person who enters the imaginery world is forced to confront the devil and choose between good and evil. Nor does anyone know that because of an old bet, the immortal man’s daughter will soon become the devil’s property. In an attempt to save her, he makes another bet: the first one to seduce five souls will be able to keep her.
