Ever wished that Terry Gilliam made more movies? The man who gave us Jabberwocky, The Fisher King and Brazil gave the world a new perspective and encouraged budding movie makers around the world to make their own visions and to stick by what they wanted to create. This film is the closest thing to anything Gilliam has made in the past but at the same time feels so original and fresh that it deserves multiple views just to appreciate the detail and love in every single frame.

Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil is a re-telling of an ancient fable about a Blacksmith who finds himself battling the Devil. In this story the Blacksmith has captured the Devil and lives a life of hermit-like seclusion away from the prying eyes of the townsfolk. All is going well until a desperate little girl, Usue, accidentally stumbles across the devil and unknowingly releases him. It is then left to the Blacksmith to reclaim his bounty, but this is easier said then done as he also finds himself at the end of a lynch mob that have come searching for the missing Usue. Not to belittle what he said, but based on the sentimental, goofy — and oftentimes very dark subject matter we then experienced during the screening of his film — I gotta wonder… what kind of sleepovers did he attend? Eight years after the bloody Carlist War which began in , a government official named Alfredo Ramon Aguirre descends upon a rural Spanish village to investigate the events of the war, which leads him to a reclusive blacksmith named Patxi Kandido Uranga , set up in what is an almost impenetrable compound in the nearby woods.
Once upon a time there was a smith who had a son six years old—a sturdy and sensible lad. One day the old man was going into the church, and stood in front of a picture of the Last Judgment. And he saw there was a devil painted there so terrible, so black, with horns and tail! This was done. From this time forward, the old man, whenever he went into the smithy, always looked at the devil and said, "Hail, fellow-countryman! So he went on living for some ten years on most excellent terms with the devil.
