Don't feel bad if you've never heard of Brazil. The 1985 movie has nothing to do with the nation. It never got released in its intended format in the United States until it became available on home video.

Terry Gilliam of Monty Python's Flying Circus wrote and directed the film. It's part film noir and part comedy, all framed by a societal fixation on bureaucracy, malfunctioning technology and ducts. The primary character is, again, like me. He daydreams about saving women in danger. He is content in a job despite pressure to advance. That changes when the character sees the woman of his dreams in real life. He accepts a job transfer to learn more about her. Trying to be with her leads to his demise.

If you see the film, make sure you have the director's cut, which should be around two-and-a-half hours. The version originally released for American television has a completely different ending, a happy ending. I believe it is called the "Love Conquers All" version.
