Terry Gilliam film in which, if you're happy at the end, you're watching the wrong version. It was Mark Kermode's friend Chris Dry who pointed out that it was a very profound Christmas movie - the scene at the start has the children wondering how Father Christmas will get in, given that they have no chimney - then a hole appears in the ceiling and the special forces invade the house. There is also the sound of sleigh bells all the way through.

Brazil is Number Eight on Mark Kermode's All Time Top 10 Best Films Evs - where it also finished on the list of Top 10 Christmas movies.

The film's original title was 1984½.
