19th-century "folklore collectors" Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm are con artists. They perform exorcisms of "evil enchantments" (for a healthy fee) while wandering about in French-occupied Germany during the Napoleonic wars. Wilhelm is a swashbuckling cad with an answer for everything, while Jacob is a dreamer who looks at life through fairytale-tinted spectacles. When French Gen. Delatombe gets wise to the schemes of Team Grimm, he presents them with a real-life mystery to solve or face the executioner's ax: children in a village have been disappearing--now the brothers' lives depend on finding out why. The charlatans must accept the burden of vanquishing what they claim as real, and find themselves ensnared in a genuinely supernatural crisis in a dark forest, amid fantastical marvels and truly enchanted flora and fauna

Dark knights & holy fools by Bob McCabe( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Award-winning film director, animator, and actor Terry Gilliam has been one of the most original, controversial, and successful filmmakers of the last three decades. Since 1969, when he became the only American among the otherwise all-British Monty Python team, Gilliam's work has won acclaim for its originality and imagination. For the first time, this book traces thirty years of his work and art, from his pre-Python days through the adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, released in 1998. Using Gilliam's own drawings, storyboard and scripts, this book builds an overview of the director's work, examining in detail his striking visual sense and labyrinthine stories of man against bureaucracy (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys), triumphant tales of imagination winning over mediocrity (Time Bandits, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King) and, of course, something completely different (Monty Python and the Holy Grail).--From publisher description
