“Time Bandits” quotes(1981)
Plot – Kevin is an eleven-year-old boy who enjoys reading fantasy novels to overcome the boredom of endless evenings spent with his parents who are obsessed by television and appliances. One night he sees six dwarves coming out of his closet. They own a map showing time holes, through which it is possible to travel in time. The Supreme Being created the world in six days and has neglected some finishing touches, such as these holes, which allow the six dwarves to steal in one era and run away in another. During an escape they barge into Kevin's room and take him with them, making him a companion of adventures and robberies throughout the centuries.
