almost an rehabilitation of animation. warm, soft, delicate, touching. the animation of a beautiful grace, convincing message, charming characters, the old fashion animation. so, a revelation. because it propose a small story about kindness, sacrifice, joy and meaning of life. nothing new. nothing complicated. only a trip across images from past with the desire to reinvent the value of old virtues. an artist and a meeting. and the flavor of Bernard Tati’s films. crumbs from movies with Charlot. and the smile with its bitter nuances. The Illusionist is only a challenge. for remind. for rediscover. for understand. or for to dream. because it has the precious gift to be pure story. not spectacular. not surprising. only modest tribute to the art of a great director. and window to a world who could seems be lost.
Magical and beautiful
After just having perused some of the most obnoxious and idiotic “reviews” for this film, one just has to speak up. Two fools on here actually go so far as to imply the film has overtones that make them uncomfortable, namely an older man and younger woman. This, of course, says more about the “reviewers” than anything on view in the film; note to “reviewers:” get a life or seek help.
Then you have the Tati acolytes who think they know everything and decry the film just because someone else had the temerity to make it. Then you have the just plain ignorant, with several people talking about how long the ninety minute film is. Note to ignorant: Sans credits, the film runs seventy-two minutes.
The most horrible films have drooling, rabid “reviewers” crying “A neglected gem!” about films that should be deposited in a trash can. But for this? This they decry. Unbelievable.
I’m not going to say much about the film because it should be discovered. It is a film of magic, it is a film of beauty, it is a film of small moments, it is a film that will ultimately be considered a masterpiece and these selfsame anonymous “reviewers” will jump on the bandwagon and blithely forget what they originally said.
See it. Sylvain Chomet is the real deal.
