Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) keeps having recurring dreams of saving a girl while in flight with angel wings. Jill Layton (Kim Greist) is seen by Sam, who was the same lady she has being dreamed of. He sees Jack Lint (Michael Palin) after being transferred to another Department. Lowry searches Jill and finally explains his situation. Archibald "Harry" Tuttle (Robert De Niro) plays an important role in the near conclusion.
A few key lines from the film: Sam – “Yes... No... I don't know. I don't know what I want.” “My, how time flies!” Helpmann – “Bad sportsmanship. A ruthless minority of people seem to have forgotten good old-fashioned virtues. They just can't stand seeing the other fellow win.” The cinematography, costumes, settings, and score were spectacular. The symbolism's of terrorism, dreams of love and harsh realities were well exemplified. Only reservations this reviewer had were the pace and structure of the plot, which is evident from the directors films. The gunshot to Jack’s head was from the back, and yet the team of Harry all came from above. Brazil is a decent look at a bleak future with a snail-paced storytelling, light and sometimes forced humor with the lack of a better character development.
