    Сast and Crew

    Production

    The script was based loosely on "Eisenheim the Illusionist", a short story by Steven Millhauser from Millhauser's 1990 collection The Barnum Museum. Together with The Prestige and Scoop, The Illusionist was one of three films in 2006 to explore the world of stage magicians.

    A sad, predictable farce, where Norton again plays the most positive, cool Norton. Translated to English

    Watched

    Naive melodrama with computer tricks. Prestige doesn’t hold a candle, although there were no fancy tricks there either. With its "magic" the film is more reminiscent of Illusion of Deception ‍. Translated to English

    It is difficult today to find a detective story whose intrigue is revealed only at the end of the film. But "The Illusionist" is just such a case. Love triangle. A classic plot for an elegant operetta. The last fairy tale of the Vienna Woods. Translated to English
