Moving Pictures: The Illusionist.


As a huge fan of both Jacques Tati and The Triplets of Belleville, The Illusionist is at the top of my holiday movies list. Based on a 40 year old script by Tati. Opens in LA and NY December 25th.

directed x Sylvain Chomet

Thank you for posting this--AMAZING. I was not familiar with Tati's work. Animation as High Art, for sure.

Got to see the premiere of this work at TIFF last week. Sadly romantic and gorgeous.
Merci Sylvain, merci Jacques
