Charming and sad,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Illusionist [DVD] (DVD)
With virtually no dialogue, this tells the story of a magician living through the dying days of variety theatre, who travels from Paris to Scotland to find work.
It's a sad story, but brightened by the magician's friendship with a young girl from a small island community.
The whole cartoon is beautifully drawn, as with its predecessor BelleVille Rendezvous, and really captures the dreary atmosphere of post=war Britain.
