A beautifully-drawn and marvelously-under-stated work of art, "L'illusionniste" is a stirring tapestry of the era of entertainment told from a magician who is attempting with all his might to prove to himself that magic still exists. A young girl who follows him from a stage show changes his life forever when he understands that magic exists in children and grows old and decays with adulthood. A moving and lovely piece, this film is one that will live through the ages.
