The Illusionist (The Animated One)

What a wasted film.

The Illusionist is well animated and has a relaxing score, but the film still manages to be one the boringest films I have ever seen. There is almost no dialogue, and it takes a long time for anything to happen. There isn’t a lot of charcter development either.

The conclusion seems kind of sudden and avoidable. The man of the film could have kep his job, he if it was deemeaning, and have been fine. The girl seemed to do little other than ask for gifts which the man can barely afford, making it seem more like “The Sugar Daddy” than anything else.

If you like slow, silent films, then this can be charming. It isn’t for me, though. C.
