Sydney Chomet's The Illusionist

Premiering at Berlin Film Festival. Sydney Chomet's latest, five-year-in-the-making, animated endeavor is co-written by Jacques Tati. Now who's excited even more? MOI! An unlikely friendship blooms between an aging French magician and a young Scottish girl. I'm only going to add some photos here, so you can get the best understanding of why I am so excited about this. If you haven't seen any of Chomet's stuff, I suggest you do. Particularly his 2003 Triplets of Belville. This is my favorite type of animation to date. I love it dearly. I'll also put a clip of Triplets at the end so you get an a sense of what awaits you in his newest film.
