All the Actors in this did a superb job of making the characters "real". There is nothing like watching Oliver Reed dancing as "Vulcan the Lame God".
Also for anybody who is a Monty Python fan who likes to collect the Monty Python movies that are not quite Monty Python movies this is a must have for your collection along with Yellow Beard, Eric the Viking, Time bandits, a Fish called Wanda and a few others.
Underneath the unbridled fantasy however, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" poses a serious question: Can the creative power of the imagination survive in a world of cold--and supposedly enlightened--reason which inevitably conjures up fear of 'the other' as an excuse to inflict suffering on its peoples through wars? And if reason succeeds in stifling imagination, will the world not be a poorer place? The Baron's opening of the city gates to end the people's suffering represents an opening of the mind to the possibilities of new creative solutions to the problems of mankind.
This beautifully acted as well as darkly humorous film is sometimes disturbing to watch, but it never ceases to fascinate!
