Cannes Film Festival: Closing movie took over 20 years to finish

Terry Gilliam persisted through numerous setbacks to produce the fifth and final version of his film that is closing this year’s Cannes film festival.

    The movie closing this year's Cannes film festival is legendary for all the WRONG reasons.

    Terry Gilliam's The Man who killed Don Quixote is the perfect example of how filming doesn't always go to plan.

    Shooting started over 20 years ago, but due to one disaster after another, it's only just been completed.
