TIFF REVIEW: FILM #14 "The Illusionist"
DIRECTED BY - Sylvain Chomet
IN MY OPINION - 9/10
I can't say anything wrong about this movie. It was an hour and a half of magnificet cell frame animation that almost had me crying by the end-almost, it was close.
How is it that if I was sitting in a live action movie I wouldn't give them the leeway to have apx 2 pages of dialogue in a feature, but with this film I didn't care at all? Storytelling at it's core, and it was pulled off with excellence and heart.
Only problem is I have to wait till Christmas to see it again.
