The Illusionist

From the minds that brought the world "Les Triplettes de Belleville" appears "L'Illusionniste" or "The Illusionist." This is an inspiring and sad story of a Magic Man at the end of vaudeville when stage acts where struggling and T.V. was new. This french film with little subtitles was made from a script written in 1956 by mime, director and actor Jacques Tati. Directed by Sylvain Chomet the film comes to life with likable characters and beautiful watercolor backgrounds. This touching tale is now nominated for Oscar for the best Animated Feature film of the year. So go out and get some magic in your life with "The Illusionist."
