About the Movie

Nominated for an Academy Award Registered for Best Animated Feature Film, The Illusionist unites the creative team of Sylvain Chomet (director of the Oscar Registered - nominated Triplets of Belleville) with the late comic genius Jacques Tati, who penned the enchanting script. In the late 1950s an aging magician travels the globe with his top hat, white rabbit and series of out-dated magic tricks. But as the flashy rock 'n' roll age creeps up, the Illusionist is forced to accept increasingly obscure engagements to get by. Traveling to Scotland, he encounters Alice, and although they don't speak the same language, the two lonely strangers begin to discover the true magic of human connection.

Customer Reviews

it is a great movie

it is a very beautiful movie it is awesome

Worth a look.

Not as entertaining or fantastic as 'The Triplets of Belville', but still a good movie. Animation and characterization is great. The movie has a very sombre tone mixed with moments that will make you smile. Isn't really a kids film either.

Not really a kids film

Great movie with a real meaning to it. I don't understand why it is in the kids genre though. A de'piction of life as it goes, I think.
