stunning artwork encompasses every scene. animation lovers will not be disappointed, but others may find it not entirely satisfying emotionally. My only gripe is the small degree of character development for the young girl.

If a picture is worth a thousand words than The Illusionist is worth 90 million words.

It's enough to make you laugh if you didn't feel like crying. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
This is a remarkable movie: lovely, slow-paced and almost silent, rich with pathos and deft comic gestures. Full Review

Arizona Republic
Chomet's defiantly two-dimensional artwork is warm, inviting, beautiful, establishing immediately a comfort level, at least for audiences of, ahem, a certain age. Full Review

New York Daily News
If this lovely tribute sends viewers in search of the real thing, that would be a neat trick indeed. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
For its 80 minutes, the movie creates the illusion that not just Tati but his form of cerebral slapstick lives. Full Review
