CANNES, France -- Heath Ledger’s final performance has been presented at the Cannes Film Festival.
Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” stars Ledger as a slick-tongued man who falls in with a mysterious troupe offering a portal to fantasy worlds.
Ledger died after completing the real-world portions of the film. Gilliam finished the film with Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell taking Ledger’s role in three trips to make-believe realities.
The movie closes with the dedication: “A film from Heath Ledger and friends.”
