Synopsis: Who are the TIME BANDITS? Where do they come from and how much do they cost? These are some of the still unresolved questions. Who or what are these creatures - timeless, yet always late; immortal, yet destructible; capable of intergalactic, inter-cosmic travel, yet unable to tie their own shoelaces? All that is known for certain is that they helped God create the world: first in the Trees and Small Shrubs Department, then after the unfortunate creation of the Pink Bunkadoo, in the lowly-paid recesses of the Repairs Department (putting fins back on dolphins, repairing rainbows, etc). After this, the history of the TIME BANDITS is less clear, but they appear to have been given the job of cataloguing and re-sealing small holes which had appeared in Time and Space (both of which God rushed through late on Friday). Then they vanished. No-one, least of all The Supreme Being (to give God his full name), would have worried except that it was discovered that they had taken the priceless map of the time-holes. Their re-appearance millions of years later in an English schoolboy's bedroom began their brief but wild career as the Time Bandits. Chased by The Supreme Being in and out of 10 centuries, and lured on to near-death and near disaster by the forces of Evil, they were only saved by a hairs-breadth from totally destroying themselves and the world. After this they disappeared back to Creation and have not been heard of since. But they could re-appear at any moment, so for those of you who may hear strange ramblings coming from your bedroom cupboard at the dead of night ... TIME BANDITS - it's an extraordinary and original fantasy that's all too believable - but never what you'd expect ... except from a writer-director team like MICHAEL and TERRY GILLIAM.
