Synopsis

Tatischeff is an old-fashioned illusionist, a master of rabbit in a hat and card tricks. Sadly for him, audiences have moved on, and the search for someone, anyone, to see his act takes him from France to the distant Scottish isles, and eventually to Edinburgh. Along the way he meets Alice, who really does believe in magic, something Tatischeff never has. Made by Belleville Rendez-Vous director Sylvain Chomet from a script by the late legendary French comedian Jacques Tati, this is a beautiful animated film, if a little sad - perfect for our older FILMCLUB members but probably not suitable for very young viewers. This film is mostly dialogue-free.
