It is nice to know that there are still movies out there that can tell you a fairly touching story for 90 minutes with hardly any dialogue. The expressions, the looks, the cities and the people come together to paint a small section of an illusionist’s life in 2010 made ”The Illusionist”.
It is quite hard to understand and follow the character’s deep feelings due to the limited dialogue. What old man and the little girl shares is pretty repetitive throughout the movie. But I believe what makes this movie beautiful is the colorful characters of show business they encounter around Paris, London and Edinburgh. My favorites are definitely the acrobat triplets 🙂 Enjoy!
