Mick Jagger: The earliest years

The Illusionist

Award-winning French animator Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville), finally returns with another lovely, hand-animated film. This one's based on a dusty old script from silent film comedian Jacques Tati (Play Time, Mr. Hulot's Holiday). In it, an aged stage magician tours around the last fading remnants of Europe's vaudeville circuit trying to make a living. In Scotland, he attracts the attentions of a sheltered young bar girl who follows him, puppy-dog-style, to Edinburgh. The near silent film is little more than a collection of "bits," but some are quite lovely. This sentimental melodrama doesn't have the energy and zest of Triplets, but it does display a palpable, bittersweet magic. FULL REVIEW: Magician does a long, slow disappearing act in melancholy animated fable by Devin D. O’Leary (2/10/2011). 80 minutes PG. (Opens Monday 5/9)
