From an unrealized screenplay by the great comic author Jacques Tati, the animated film The Illusionist is born. The appointment on SimulWatch is for Saturday 10 October at 6 pm.
The shared vision of Saturday 10 October organized by the editorial staff of Comingsoon.it his SimulWatch, our app available for free on Google Play e App Store, is an animated film produced in France in 2010. La storia de The Illusionist is based on an unrealized script by the great French author Jacques Tati, who knew how to blend humor and poetry in his films in a unique and unrepeatable way. The director and animator Sylvain Chomet, to whom we owe the delicious Appointment in Belleville, adapt the script of Daddy and draws the protagonist on his physiognomy. What Chomet gives us is not a new film by Tati, but it is a tribute to the brilliant author filtered through his sensitivity, respecting his artistic identity and never making a caricature of him.
The appointment for see The Illusionist all together and comment on it with friends and family, each at home, through the SimulWatch chat is set for Saturday 10 October at 6 pm.
The Illusionist takes place in the Paris of 1959. In a world that is changing faster and faster, between the arrival of rock’n’roll music and the invention of television, there seems to be no longer any interest in the French illusionist’s magic shows Tatischeff. The elderly magician now performs in small theaters, where the audience is less and less enthusiastic and numerous. Unable to compete with the new attractions of the metropolis, the illusionist leaves the city of lights to travel to a small town in Scotland. There he meets Alice, a girl who sees his show as a true magician. The young woman even decides to follow him to Edinburgh, where his next show will be held.
