An evil force from a 1000 years in the future begins to destroy an idyllic paradise, where the citizens are in perfect harmony with nature.
The film is based on the novel "Les Hommes-machines contre Gandahar" (The Machine-Men versus Gandahar) by Jean-Pierre Andrevon.
My quest began with a riddle. 'In a thousand years, Gandahar was destroyed, and and all its people massacred. A thousand years ago, Gandahar will be saved, and what can't be avoided will be.
The Miramax Dubbed version is edited from the original French release. Most of the editing is from the first 36 minutes from the film. In the Miramax cut there is a new introduction of a quote by Issac Asimov, and an extended ending using footage from earlier in the film. The French cut ends with the head floating through the air. The French version contains roughly 6 minutes and 37 seconds more footage than the Miramax version(not including the Opening Titles and Credits). A lot of this is dialogue and more intimate scenes between Sylvain and Airelle in the nest and on the ship to Métamorphe. There is also a sequence cut of the black robots which is also shown in a montage inside Métamorphe later in the film.
