Movie of the Week 21 : The Illusionist
Vienna is an interesting location: the home of innovations in demagoguery, psychology and the inducement of mass hysteria. Norton plays Abramovitz, a low-born Austrian cabinet-maker’s son who as a boy discovers in himself a vocation for magic.
The Illusionist is more modest in conception, with more control and more focus; its trick ending is more guessable but more realistic and more satisfying, too. At its centre is an enigmatic showman in turn-of-the-century Vienna, played with charisma and poise by Edward Norton; the director is Neil Burger, and the result is a smart, sharp, economically achieved piece of work.
It is a good movie to watch.
