Above are some still shots from the animation, where you can see the beautifully drawn and atmospheric scenes.
The animation is based on a script by Jacques Tati. Director Sylvain Chomet gained permission to adapt it into The Illusionist from Tati's family and Chomet based the main character Monsieur Tatischeff on Jacques Tati himself.
I agree with the above quote entirely - I could not have put it any better myself! I borrowed this quote from a blog that I came across and where I viewed a really good review - Lavey's Blog.'The result is utterly distinctive and beguiling, with its own language and grammar of innocence: gentle, affectionate, whimsical, but deeply felt and with an arrowhead of emotional pain.' (Bradshaw 2010).
