"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is the Vancouver-lensed fantasy, directed by Terry Gilliam, from a screenplay by Gilliam and Charles McKeown.
The feverish, surreal film follows an ancient leader of a travelling theatre troupe (Christopher Plummer) who makes a deal with the Devil (Tom Waits), taking audience members through a magical mirror 'to explore their imaginations'.
The late Heath Ledger as the angelic 'Tony', was replaced in the film by smarmy Johnny Depp, wide-eyed Jude Law and nasty Colin Farrell.
"...In the present day, immortal 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) leads a traveling theatre troupe—including a sleight of hand expert, Anton (Andrew Garfield), and a dwarf, Percy (Verne Troyer)—that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession.
Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil (Tom Waits), who now comes to collect on the arrangement, targeting the doctor's daughter (Lily Cole). The troupe, which is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (portrayed by Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell,)embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl..."
