Movie Magic

Yesterday we watched the Illusionist. I immediately thought about the Prestige which is also a movie about magicians. I liked the latter better because the plot and the actors were better. Scarlett Johansson has a lot more depth than Jessica Biel. Biel is not even pretty. But the Illusionist was very visual and therefore very pleasant to watch. I don't care so much about the plot if everything else is from the top.

Anyway. The Illusionist is a very typical love story: A certain man loves a certain woman. They are separated by higher powers. They meet again but the woman is involved with other man. Bla bla bla. How many times have we seen this already? But these both movies hold one ultimate trick we haven't seen yet. You can do a lot when little magic is added.

Here is the official trailer for you:
