An 80-minute, hand-drawn animated French film without dialogue and with one of the most depressing finale acts ever committed to celluloid: this is The Illusionist. It's also some sort of divine masterpiece.
Mostly worth seeing for its elegant "old school" cels. However, the relationship between the elderly magician and the girl who tags along with him is never very moving despite all the intentions of the screenwriter and director.
Like Chomet's "The Triplets of Belleville," it's a lovingly crafted animated film that invites the audience to luxuriate in the hand-painted visuals, to chuckle at the small jokes stuffed into the corners of the film.
