No, this is not the one with Edward Norton. This is the film that was nominated by the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film in 2010. The director happened to make one of my favorite animated films ever “The Triplets of Bellville”. The story follows a magician trying to make money hits the road to Scotland where he meets a young woman who follows him on his journey. I honestly didn’t get sucked into the story on this one. The animation and beautiful score are what made the film enjoyable to me. The various illusions and magic tricks that the magician does were pretty mesmerizing. The night scenes in streetlight backed streets of Scotland were gorgeously done. The score was engaging and just fit the scenery so well. Chomet and his animation team really know how to use colors and music together to create an immerse film. Like “Bellville”, the film doesn’t have much dialogue so the animation has to pick up the slack. It does. It certainly does.

The story just didn’t do it for me. The magical settings painted in the beginning of the film just sort of floated away by the films end. It got really sad and depressing. I understood the theme of the film but that kind of mood switch threw me for a bit of a loop. I wanted to stay in the happy place. Besides that it’s an excellent animated film and proof that Sylvain Chomet and his team are one of the top animation teams in the business. It isn’t just Pixar.

Fantastic, beautiful, elegant film! Loved the depiction of Edinburgh, and the details! As an Architect, I love the phrase "God is in the details" (by Mies van der Rohe), and I enjoyed those little, subtle things in the movie.

Beautiful animation, and a wonderful story told almost entirely through the moving image itself, much like in a silent film. I found some of it laid on a little thick (what's sadder than a drunken ventriloquist begging for change? I know! - A crippled puppy!!!) but overall it was magical and deeply felt. And it ended when it was supposed to.

Good animation, but otherwise rubbish. Just as bad as all the other Tati films.

a truly beautiful film which definitely deserved the oscar, having now seen all three. I loved toy story and cried at the end but I think this film surpasses the depth of toy story and achieves it with more subtlety and poignancy. beautiful final 5 minutes are so moving. this is a portrayal of a lonely man of the highest order, a must see!
