HandMade Films logo
  • PG
  • 1981

In this fantastic voyage through time and space from Terry Gilliam, a boy named Kevin (Craig Warnock) escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarfs. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson), they plunder treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery)?but the Evil Genius (David Warner) is watching their every move. Featuring a darkly playful script by Gilliam and his Monty Python cohort Michael Palin (who also appears in the film), Time Bandits is at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire of technology gone awry.

Time Bandits Film Synopsis

Young history buff Kevin can scarcely believe it when six dwarfs emerge from his closet one night. Former employees of the Supreme Being, they've purloined a map charting all of the holes in the fabric of time and are using it to steal treasures from different historical eras. Taking Kevin with them, they variously drop in on Napoleon, Robin Hood and King Agamemnon before the Supreme Being catches up with them.

Кевин /дебют за Крейг Уорнък/ е симпатично хлапе с богато въображение, което се присъединява към банда джуджета, които пътуват във времето, защото имат карта с всички портали на Вселената. Целта им е да търсят съкровище, което да откраднат. Култов филм във филмографията на Тери Гилиъм, който заедно с останалите от "Монти Пайтън" прави един впечатляващ реверанс към любимите герои от детството. При бюджет от 5 милиона, филмът печели над 42 милиона само в Щатите.

Un noi s'uneix accidentalment a una banda de nans que van saltant d'època en època, mercès a un mapa de forats temporals que posseeixen, a la recerca de tresors per robar.

Ten večer se malému Kevinovi jeho skříň na šaty nezdála. Ozval se prapodivný rachot a následně z ní vyběhnul kůň, na kterém seděl jezdec v brnění. Když se Kevin probral z leknutí a vystrčil hlavu zpod peřiny, tak byl jezdec pryč a pokoj byl úplně normální. Stejně mu to nedalo a druhý večer si přichystal baterku a foťák. Už téměř spal, když se mu ze skříně vyhrunulo do pokoje šest malých trpaslíků, kteří ukradli Nejvyšší bytosti Mapu, podle níž se dá cestovat v čase. Chtě nechtě se Kevin stává účastníkem jejich výpravy, po jejímž skončení by se ze šesti malých trpaslíků měla stát legendární loupežnická banda. A nebo ne, když by se jim podařilo okrást Napoleona nebo mykénského krále Agamemnona? O mapu však má zájem i samotný představitel Zla, který touží zničit svět a Nejvyšší bytost ji chce taky vrátit zpět. Teď je na Kevinovi a jeho (stejně vysokých) společnících, jak se s nastalou situací dokáží vypořádat.

I Terry Gilliam fantastiske rejse gennem tid og rum, deltager en drenge i et rumfærd med en flok tidsrejsende dværge. På deres rejse besøger de Napoleon (Ian Holm), Robin Hood (John Cleese) og kong Agamemnon (Sean Connery). Det er et hektisk eventyr, en revisionistisk historietime og en satire på teknologi der går galt - alle pakket ind i et eventyr.

Als ihm eines Nachts sechs Zwerge aus seinem Kleiderschrank entgegenpurzeln, kann der kleine Kevin seinen Augen nicht trauen. Die Zwerge erzählen ihm, dass sie dem Obersten Wesen eine Karte mit Zeitlöchern gestohlen haben, um erfolgreiche Banditen zu werden. Der Junge lässt sich nicht lange bitten und schließt sich den Zwergen an. Gemeinsam treffen sie in Frankreich auf Napoleon, stellen aber schnell fest, dass er ein großer Lausbub ist. In König Agamemnon findet Kevin seine langersehnte Vaterfigur, während sich sein Held Robin Hood als Unterdrücker der Bauern entpuppt. Doch durch unglückliche Umstände kann das personifizierte Böse die Karte an sich nehmen.

Μια συμμορία (διαχρονικών ληστών), που είχε βοηθήσει το υπέρτατο Ον στη δημιουργία του κόσμου, ξανάρχεται για να κλείσει τις διάφορες τρύπες που υπάρχουν στο χώρο και το χρόνο.

A Kevin, un chico con una imaginación desbordante, una noche lo despierta un grupo de enanos que sale de su propio armario. Estos personajes eran antiguos criados del "Ser Supremo", pero, cansados de trabajar para él, decidieron robarle un mapa para poder viajar a través del tiempo y del espacio con la intención de robar grandes tesoros en distintas épocas. Además, sus viajes les han permitido conocer a diversos personajes históricos: Napoleón, Agamenón, el rey de Micenas, e incluso Robin Hood.

El joven aficionado a la historia Kevin apenas puede creerlo cuando seis enanos salen de su armario una noche. Antiguos empleados del Ser Supremo, han robado un mapa que muestra todos los agujeros en la estructura del tiempo y lo están utilizando para robar tesoros de diferentes épocas históricas. Al llevar a Kevin con ellos, se encuentran con Napoleón, Robin Hood y el Rey Agamenón antes de que el Ser Supremo los alcance.

He ärsyttivät Jumalaa ja nyt piru heidät perii! Jumala on suuttunut! Eräät hänen palvelijoistaan ovat kyseenalaistaneet hänen asemansa kaikkivaltiaana varastamalla hänen kaikkein kallein omaisuutensa, aikakartan. Varkaat matkustavat esteittä ajasta toiseen varastaen keisarien ja ihmisten aarteita. Tässä tilanteessa varkaat saapuvat Graigin luo ja vievät hänet uskomattomalle matkalle ajassa ja ikuisuudessa. Napoleon, Robin Hood, Agamemnon lopuksi itse Piru ovat yhdessä sekalmelskassa ja Jumala seuraa heidän kintereillään. Lopullinen koettelemus odottaa matkustajia aikojen lopussa...

Pendant la nuit, Kevin, un petit garçon anglais, est visité par six nains qui ont dérobé à l'Être suprême la carte du temps. L'enfant s'engage alors dans un voyage à travers l'Histoire : il fait la rencontre de Napoléon à la bataille de Castiglione ainsi que de Robin des bois dans la forêt de Sherwood. Il croisera également sur son chemin le majestueux paquebot « Titanic ».

ילד לונדוני, בן להורים בורגנים שכל מעיינם נתון למכשירים חשמליים, נסחף להרפתקאות גרוטסקיות מההיסטוריה האנושית. אנטיתזה לסרטי הילדים ההוליבודיים, מתוצרת ותיקי חבורת מונטי פייטון וטרי גיליאם בראשם. גיליאם משלב כאן וירטואוזיות טכנית, חומר אבסורדי ועיצוב תפאורות מדהים עם עלילה פנטסטית שחלקה אגדית וחלקה מדע-בדיונית - כזו שיכולה להתאים לילדים אבל יש בה את המגע השנון שאוהבים המבוגרים. בקצרה: כל סימני ההכר שמאפיינים את הקריירה של טרי גיליאם מופיעים כבר בסרט מוקדם זה.

Az élénk fantáziájú kisfiú, Kevin (Craig Warnock) egyszerű angol hétköznapjait éli. Egy nap azonban Kevin szobája furcsa látogatók állomása lesz, törpék érkeznek hozzá, akik egy olyan térképet csentek el a mindenség urától, amely felfedi az időlyukak hollétét. A furfangos időutazók arra akarják használni ezt a jogtalanul szerzett kincset, hogy kifosszák a történelem gazdag és híres szereplőit. Így kíséri el Kevin az apró banditákat Napóleon seregeihez, Robin Hood (John Cleese) erdejébe, Agamemnón (Sean Connery) palotáira és a balsorsú Titanicra. Mindeközben a sötétség erői szemmel tartják a szórakozott időutazókat, hiszen a gonosznak is fáj a foga a fontos térképre.

Kevin è un ragazzo undicenne che si diletta di letture fantastiche per vincere la noia delle interminabili sere passate accanto ai genitori, appassionati di televisione ed elettrodomestici. Una notte vede uscire dall'armadio sei nani che posseggono la pianta del tempo con alcuni buchi, attraverso i quali è possibile passare da un'epoca all'altra della storia. Kevin salta all'interno della storia e della fantasia e, vivendo straordinarie avventure, conosce personaggi celebri e leggendari come Agamennone, Robin Hood, Napoleone Bonaparte, e viaggia a bordo del Titanic.


"시간의 지도"를 훔쳐 역사의 유산을 도둑질하던 난쟁이 일당이 우연찮은 계기로 1980년대의 영국에 도착한다. 시간을 초월하는 구멍을 통해 시간 여행을 할수 있는 난쟁이들은 자신들의 재배자로부터 도주한 것이었다. 그들은 80년대 영국에서 부모로부터 소외된 외로운 소년 케빈을 만나 그를 동반자로 맞이한다. 케빈과 난쟁이들은 나폴레옹 시대부터 중세시대, 1900년대 초반의 시대들을 여행하는데... 영화는 과거의 역사적 인물들을 만나는 과정을 - 로빈 후드, 나폴레옹 등- 통해 역사의 신

De jonge Kevin gaat op een tijdreis-avontuur met een stel schatzoekende dwergen. Ze hebben een map van de gaten van het heelal "geleend" van hun meester.

Denne herlige fantasi-filmen handler om unge Kevin som befinner seg på reise gjennom hull i rom/tid kontinuum i selskap med et halvt dusin dverger. På sin reise møter han Agamemnon Robin Hood og Napoleon, og han ender opp som passasjer på Titanic, men ikke nødvendigvis i den rekkefølgen. Men er dette bare tilfeldig underholdning laget for historie-elsker Kevins fordel, eller er det en del av en større kamp mellom de gode styrkene og de onde?

Sześciu krasnali otrzymuje zadanie odnalezienia fabryki wszechświata, aby naprawić maszyny produkujące dziurawy czas. Postanowiwszy zostać bandytami z prawdziwego zdarzenia, krasnale wykradają mapę, na której zaznaczono "dziury czasowe". Można przez nie dostać się do dowolnej epoki i pozostać tam tak długo, jak się zechce. Zanim jednak krasnale rozpoczynają wędrówkę po przeszłości, trafiają do domu Kevina, małego angielskiego chłopca, i zabierają go ze sobą w dalszą podróż. Ich śladem podąża Zły Duch, który usiłuje odebrać im niezwykłą mapę.

Seis anões, perseguidos por um certo Ser Supremo, escoltam um adolescente inglês através do tempo. Usando um mapa, eles viajam no tempo ao mesmo tempo em que fogem dos perigos. Ótimo roteiro, repleto de idéias originais e engraçadas, com direção brilhante de Terry Gilliam e o humor típico do grupo Monty Python.

Um rapaz na companhia de anões caçadores de tesouros, parte numa aventura diferente. Dotados de um mapa eles viajam no tempo ao mesmo tempo que fogem do perigo.

Лента рассказывает о шести предприимчивых карликах, которые устраивают обычному мальчику по имени Кевин грандиозное путешествие по туннелям времени. Дело в том, что крошечные бандиты завладели волшебной картой, принадлежавшей их бывшему хозяину — Верховному Существу, сотворившему Мир. С помощью заветной карты герои путешествуют из одной эпохи в другую и попадают в самые удивительные ситуации: они оказываются в компании подвыпившего Наполеона Бонапарта и царя Агамемнона, отправляются в плавание на корабле морского монстра и злополучном «Титанике», гостят в Шервудском лесу у Робин Гуда и пытаются выбраться из заточения Вечной Пустоты. Но помимо могущественного хозяина карты, ею хочет завладеть и Воплощение Зла, заточенное Высшим Существом в крепость Вечного Мрака.

Sanjaškega, radovednega dečka Kevina iz pustega angleškega doma odpelje šest nagajivih škratov, ki so si od Najvišjega izposodili – bolje rečeno, ukradli – zemljevid časovnih lukenj v vesolju. Te jim omogočajo potovanje v času in nemudoma se odpravijo v preteklost, kjer srečajo Robina Hooda, kralja Agamemnona ter Napoleona – in vsem ukradejo njihove dragocenosti. Vendar pa Najvišji zahteva svoj zemljevid, zato nenehno prekinja potovanje Kevina in časovnih nepridipravov, medtem ko plenijo in kradejo vsakovrstne zaklade.

I Terry Gilliams fantastiska resa genom tid och rum, flyr en pojke från sina prylgalna föräldrar för att åka med några tidsresande dvärgar. På sin resa, besöker de Napoleon, Robin Hood och kung Agamemnon, bland andra populära figurer. Det är en svindlande, visuell saga, en historielektion och en satir om teknik som gått snett - allt i ett enda äventyr.

Çok çok eskilerde, küçücük hırsızlardan oluşan bir topluluk vardı. Dünyayı yalnızca altı günde yaratmak zorunda kalan Ulu Varlık'ın evrenin dokusunda aceleden bıraktığı zaman-mekân deliklerinden geçerek dolaşırlardı. Zaman Haydutları bu umarsız, açgözlü ama sevimli gezgin cücelerle, aralarına katılan küçük dostları Kevin'in tarih içindeki koşuşturmalarını, hem soyup hem soyuldukları serüvenleri ünlü sinema yıldızları eşliğinde anlatıyor. Öykü şöyle sürüyor: Zaman hırsızlarının elinde, zamandaki delikleri gösteren bir kroki vardır. Ulu Varlık onlara bu delikleri yamama görevi verir. Ne var ki açgözlülüklerine yenilen cüceler, asıl haritayı çalarak geçmişte kayıplara karışırlar. En büyük hatalarından biri de 1980'lerin İngiltere'sinde Kevin adlı sıradan bir İngiliz öğrencisinin katalogla alışveriş karabasanına girmeleri olur. Kevin, mutfak gereçleri çılgınlığından kaçarak sözcüklerin ve resimlerin içinde geçmişin şaşırtıcı olaylarına sığınır.
