About the Movie
A British schoolteacher, Nicholas, has left his girlfriend to take a job on a small island in Greece, replacing a man who committed suicide under mysterious circumstances. Nicholas meets Conchis, "The Magus" (meaning magician), a wealthy recluse with a mysterious past that might include collaboration with the Nazis. The Magus's companion, Lily, is just as suspicious, lurking around in a ghostly state of paranoia. Slowly but surely, Nicholas is drawn into a bizarre game masterminded by this magician. The deeper into the game he is drawn, the more he senses danger...yet he cannot seem to untangle himself from the fascinating and compelling influence that the game is having on his mind.
Odd and Fascinating
This movie is quite a mind twister...the cinematography is great and the acting so-so. The continuity of the story is extremely odd and takes away from the enjoyment of this film. One who has read the book by John Fowles may enjoy it much more. Not the best, yet not terrible...
