The Illusionist - video clips
This article is from 2010.
One of the most talked about movies at this year's Film Festival is The Illusionist, Sylvain Chomet's first feature since the critically acclaimed Belleville Rendez-vous.
Based on a Jacques Tati script and transposed to 1950s Scotland it is the story of a down-on-his-luck stage illusionist meeting a young woman who believes his magic is real.
We've gathered together five video clips from the film. The clips are in French, but don't worry if you're not a French speaker – the animation effortlessly conveys the story.
