Plot

The fantastic tale of a 17th century aristocrat, his talented henchmen and a little girl in their efforts to save a town from defeat by the Turks. Being swallowed by a giant sea-monster, a trip to the moon, a dance with Venus and an escape from the Grim Reaper are only some of the improbable adventures. Baron Munchausen is a character of European myth that might be considered the predecessor of American tales of Pecos Bill or Paul Bunyan. The Baron's stories are taken to be outrageous and fanciful lies. This is the origin of the name of the psychiatric diagnosis of "Munchausen's Syndrome", a particularly bizzare form of hypochondria.
 

Comments

Entertaining movie I can see this movie is super for the special effects in the 80's. Although some scene i can clearly see the wire hanging through the actor's back, it is still a worth entertaining fantasy movie. As i go through this movie on DVD, i noticed some part are similar to on Terry's movie called "The 12 Monkeys" which explosion and the set environment seems the same. The atmospheare are not a very bright or suitable scene but it still provide a very nice sequence.
