Despite having not seen each other in fifteen years when they were teenagers, they almost immediately recognize each other as Eduard Abramovich and Sophie von Teschen, they who had a doomed romance at that time due to their class differences. The Duchess is soon to be wed to the Crown Prince Leopold in what would be for him a marriage solely in pursuit of power: overthrowing his father, the Emperor Leopold, as well as overtaking the Hungarian side of the empire. The Crown Prince is known to use violence against women if it suits his needs or purposes. As such, the Duchess, who realizes that she still loves Eisenheim and he her, can never leave the Crown Prince without it jeopardizing her life. After Eisenheim humiliates the Crown Prince at a private show which results in an incident between the Crown Prince and the Duchess, the battle between Eisenheim and the Crown Prince moves into the public performance realm, which many believe demonstrates Eisenheim’s supernatural powers. Much of the work for the Crown Prince in the battle with Eisenheim is conducted by Chief Inspector Uhl, who would become the Chief of Police under the Crown Prince’s reign. As such, Uhl may have ulterior motives in turning a blind eye to any unlawful act of the Crown Prince against Eisenheim or the Duchess.
Plot: With his eye on a lovely aristocrat, a gifted illusionist named Eisenheim uses his powers to win her away from her betrothed, a crown prince. But Eisenheim’s scheme creates tumult within the monarchy and ignites the suspicion of a dogged inspector.

Life and death. Space and time. Fate and chance. Theses are the forces of the universe.

The Illusionist is directed by Neil Burger and Burger adapts the screenplay from “Eisenheim the Illusionist” written by Steven Millhauser. It stars Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti, Jessica Biel and Rufus Sewell. Music is by Philip Glass and cinematography by Dick Pope.

How splendid, a period romantic mystery that’s filled with the mysticism of magical conjurings and political volatility. Plot essentially has Norton as Eisenheim The Illusionist, who later in life runs into Sophie (Biel), his childhood sweetheart, and finds that she’s on course to marry Crown Prince Leopold (Sewell). Leopold has a bad reputation and it’s not long before Eisenheim comes under Leopold’s disdain, forcing Eisenheim to try and pull off the ultimate magic act to save Sophie and himself.

Creator Neil Burger crafts a picture that has everything going for it. The story is rock solid with intrigue credentials, where appropriately for a story based around magic tricks nothing is ever as it seems. The period flavours are smartly assembled, the Czech Republic locations smartly standing in for turn of the century Vienna, the art production is on point with the era of setting, as is the costuming. Glass drifts a tender melancholic score over the piece, while Pope’s cinematography is simply gorgeous, offering up colour lensing that’s aura enhancing, the kind you could get lost in for days.

The magic tricks are beguiling, as they should be and are in fact required since the narrative tantalisingly suggests Eisenheim may have supernatural powers? The story itself has no historical worth, but is fascinating none the less. It all builds towards its revelations, and much hinges on if the pay off is worth the admission fee? Most assuredly so it is, even if from a personal point of view this writer wouldn’t have minded if pic had finished five minutes before the final revelation.

Either way, and with smart acting (Giamatti as the police inspector standing out) without histrionics holding things at the top end, this is delicate film making that engages the emotions fully for entertainment rewards. 8/10

A Wonderful, suspenseful, sensual escape from reality
I love movies of all type for different reasons. Action movies to become stimulated physically, comedies to laugh my troubles away, suspense to sit on the edge of my seat. But mostly, I attend movies to escape from a humdrum and dangerous world. “The Illusionist” is the ultimate in escape movies. It is gripping from he opening scene and the grip lasts until the final realization. The story is masterfully crafted and the screenplay intriguing. The special effects and illusions are entertainment enough. But all of this surrounded in the backdrop of the story, it’s movement from one idea to another is an added treat. First there is the marvelous acting of all the major actors, surrounded by great support. The cinematography and music are awesome. This movie is filled with entertainment, suspense, romance, sensuality tastefully done, treachery and surprises. I have not been so entranced by a movie since the first Banderas Zorro movie. I didn’t look at my watch once and the one hour and forty-five minutes flew by in delight. I want to see this movie over and over again. and I will still marvel at its perfection. You all must go and see it.

What a splendid team effort this film represents. The direction and the performances are fine, and they’re lifted well above the simply “fine” by the art direction, set dresser, photographer, and by Philip Glass’s most aptly otherworldly score. Even Prague, frozen in time, the perennial stand in for turn-of-the-century Vienna, looks more authentic than it has before.

The story involves the rivalry between the evil and ambitious Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary (Rufus Sewell) and a humble cabinet maker’s son (Edward Norton) who has turned into a world famous stage magician or “illusionist”) for the love of a young noblewoman (Jessica Biel). It’s well written and acted. Sewell could have turned the Prince into a maniac frothing at the mouth but instead has kept him a quietly smug heavy who mostly keeps his violence under wraps. Jessica Biel is competent and not too beautiful as the prize, although, to be sure, judging from her appearance as a child, she should have grown up to be Cate Blanchett instead of Jessica Biel. Edward Norton, just when you think he’s exhausted his bag of thespian tricks, comes up with another fresh character, this time intelligent, confident, elliptical, enigmatic.

The special effects deserve a prize. After the supposed murder of Jessica Biel’s character, Norton appears again on stage, but this time not in tails but shirtsleeves and without props — no cane, no fluttering doves, no top hat concealing an albino rabbit — not even an introduction. He sits alone before the audience, saying nothing, raises his open palm and an apparition slowly appears. We know it’s all process photography, yet through the sensory impressions left by the visuals and the score, it turns into a very spooky moment. The rumor spreads that Norton has made a Faustian pact and it gets him into even more trouble.

I won’t go on with this, I don’t think. “All will be revealed,” as Charlie Chan used to say, or was it Hercule Poirot? I can’t say the plot is entirely successful but I can say that there haven’t been that many more beautiful movies lately.
