The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. Dr. Parnassus with his extraordinary travelling show ‘The Imaginarium’, offers to members of his audience the irresistible opportunity to enter their universe of imaginations and wonders by passing through a magical mirror. But Doctor Parnassus is also cursed with a dark secret. An inveterate gambler, thousands of years ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality.
Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr. Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his daughter reached her 16th birthday, she would become the property of Mr Nick. In this captivating, explosive and wonderfully imaginative race against time, Dr. Parnassus must fight to save his daughter and undo the mistakes of his past once and for all!
