Last year I made several posts about Sylvain Chomet's new animated feature , The Illlusionist ("L'Illusionniste") .
Time to mention it again.
Now that the film has received an Academy Award nomination as "Best Animated Feature Film" and is in a somewhat wider release pattern I wanted to post the release schedule from Sony Classics. Here is where the film is currently playing or will be opening soon:
If the film is playing in your city or close-by I highly recommend you see this sumptuously animated film. Especially if classical hand-drawn animation is something you are passionate about then you owe it to yourself to see and support this beautiful, poignant film on the big screen.
Here is the North American Trailer -
(I suggest that you switch the video settings to HD , watch full-screen).
Here is some artwork from the film:
