THE ILLUSIONIST (2006)
- It's very nice to see an original film concept for a change and they did a good job with THE ILLUSIONIST (2006)
. It's the story of childhood sweethearts who belong to different social classes. The boy and girl are forced to stay away from each other. With the girl all grown up and about to marry the prince (and future king) of Austria and the boy who dissappeared for 15 years and travelled the world. They are about to meet again when the boy who becomes a gifted magician is performing in Vienna and the royals are attending the show and the girl gets to go to the stage to be part of the evenings show. The magician suddenly recognizes her. The prince wants to know how the magic is done, so he's invited to a private performance with the aristocrats including the prince.
