The Illusionist, Ecossais”’illusionniste film was nominated for an Oscar. The film – which was made by a team of animators in Edinburgh and Dundee – was nominated for Best Animated Film. Director Sylvain Chomet set up a studio in the Scottish capital after visiting his film festival seven years ago.

“Le”Illusionist, which was described as a” representation of fairy tale “of Scotland, faces Toy Story 3 and How To Train Your Dragon. The winner will be announced in Los Angeles on February 27.

Mr. Chomet, a native of Paris, has already been nominated for an Oscar in 2003 for Belleville Rendez-vous. “Le”Illusionist, which had its premiere at the Festival last year’s Edinburgh film is about a magician who travels to Edinburgh from Paris.

It was inspired by the French director’s travel around Scotland.

“Le”Illusionist (the animated 2010/2011, not 2006 a live-action).” Sylvain Chomet instantly became the toast of the animation world after the publication of his beloved 2003 film, The Triplets of Belleville The film was enthusiastically received by critics and was eventually nominated for Best Animated Film; it is not surprising that fans of animation have waited impatiently for monitoring Chomet. Unfortunately “Le”Illusionniste is simply not capable of living up to the almost insane hype has been building since the first several film festivals 2010.”
“Le”Illusionist is a marvel of animation director Sylvain Chomet, Triplets of Belleville which earned him two Oscar nominations.

The film was created from a script by Jacques Tati, and traces the story of a father daughter type of relationship / between a magician and middle-aged teenager who moves into his life.

The story begins in Paris. Flawless illusions notwithstanding, our skilled magician has a poorly fitted suit and a single poster; elements that suggest its glory days are behind him. It’s the late ’50s, and we look at sharing the stage with rock bands in rooms that are empty after the mop-top pop princes complete whole. It takes all sober in stride, rarely changing his expression serious.

A drunken joy Scotsman commits Mr. Tatischeff – real surname of Jacques Tati – and gets him to travel in a pub in Scotland to make a show.

The pub is in a remote fishing village, and it Tatischeff meeting the girl, who is employed as a housekeeper. Fortunately she washes and irons all ‘illusionist”shirts. He noted his terrible, tattered shoes and replaces them with a pair of beautiful red Mary Janes. Fascinated by his new hero and the true believer can magically follows the girl secretly in Edinburgh.

There, Mr. Tatischeff is surprised, but apparently not shocked to see he was followed. He and the girl is in the same household together, he works his magic, and she keeps the house. It also shows him in the windows, just the kind of beautiful shoes and clothes adult, she believes. He works and budgets to buy what she wants, and we watch her slowly blossom into a sophisticated young woman.
