Based on an unproduced script written by Jacques Tati, The Illusionist is Sylvain Chomet’s second animated feature film. It won the first César Award for Best Animated Feature and tells the story of an illusionist who relocates and finds himself in the company of a young girl who believes him for a real magician. The film was originally scripted as a live-action film but was animated to avoid casting an actor to play Tati.
