The Illusionist

The Illusionist


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. Then, while performing in a village pub off the west coast of Scotland, he encounters Alice, an innocent young girl, who will change his life forever.


Originally written by French comedy genius and cinema legend Jacques Tati as a love letter from a father to his daughter, Sylvain Chomet - the Oscar-nominated and critically acclaimed creator of _Belleville Rendez-vou_, adapted the script and brought it to life in his distinctive, beautifully hand- drawn style.
