A film by Sylvain Chomet
Starring Jean-Claude Donda, Eilidh Rankin and Duncan MacNeil

From the director of The Triplets of Belleville.

The Illusionist is one of a dying breed of stage entertainers and he is forced to accept increasingly obscure assignments in fringe theaters, bars and cafes. Then, while performing in a village pub, he encounters Alice, an innocent young girl who will change his life forever. Though they don’t speak the same language, the two lonely strangers quickly bond through small kindnesses.

Original screenplay by Jacques Tati.
