The Illusionist (2010)
Screened in January 2011
Director: Sylvain Chomet. Animated. Voices of Jean-Claude Donda, Eilidh Rankin. Screenplay: Sylvain Chomet (based on the earlier screenplay by Jacques Tati).
Twitter Capsule: Rigor in its arc, detail in every frame, but cruelty and sentiment make uneasy pair. I felt little by the finale.
