In the late 1950s an aging magician travels the globe with his series of out-dated magic tricks. But as the flashy rock 'n' roll age steals his audience, The Illusionist feels increasingly irrelevant. His gloom is lifted in Scotland, where he encounters Alice, an innocent young girl who will change his life forever. Though they dont speak the same language, the two lonely strangers discover the true magic of human connection.
A Film by Sylvain Chomet and Jacques Tati
