Not to be confused with the thriller starring Edward Norton and Jessica Biel. From director Sylvain Chomet, who’s bought us beautifully animated films such as Paris, je t’aime, and The Triplets of Belleville. The illusionist is one more illustrative fantasy ride I will surely be seeing on the big screen. Starring the voices of Jean-Claude Donda, Edith Rankin, Jil Algrot, Didier Gustin, Frédéric Lebon, and Tom Urie
The Illusionist is one of a dying breed of stage entertainers. With emerging rock stars stealing his thunder in the late 1950s, he is forced to accept increasingly obscure assignments in fringe theatres, at garden parties and in bars and cafés. However, whilst performing in a village pub off the west coast of Scotland, he encounters Alice, an innocent young girl, who will change his life forever.
