Grand Illusion

With its Tati script, direction by Sylvain Chomet, and Scottish setting, it was probably pretty predictable that I would love THE ILLUSIONIST, which opens Edinburgh International Film Festival. Nevertheless, I’ve tried to analyze it, over at The Daily Notebook. See you there!

It’s pretty sweet that the film contains a character obviously modeled on the young Sean Connery, since Sir Sean, eighty this year, will be attending the premiere as part of his duties as festival patron.
