Director: Sylvain Chomet
Cast: Eilidh Rankin, Jean-Claude Donda
Whimsical, nostalgic and beautiful, this hand-drawn animated film relies almost entirely on visual storytelling.
Few words are spoken – or needed – in this tale about Tatischeff, an old-time magician facing a world that’s interested in other art forms - like rock and roll. Starting off in Paris 1959, and then travelling to Scotland via London, Tatischeff, accompanied by his magician’s rabbit, is befriended by the innocent Alice and it is their friendship that forms the cornerstone of the film.
Based on a 1956 script by the late great French filmmaker and actor, Jacques Tati, The Illusionist is ravishing, the scenery and historic Scottish street are fabulous, and the animation fluid.
There is also a sense of melancholy as we watch the ageing, solitary Tatischeff confront the fact that the world no longer has a place for him.
