"The Illusionist" : There Are Magicians

I watched this movie on the verge of tears almost the entire way through. Melancholy, sweet, quiet, beautiful. Chomet was already my hero with "Triplettes of Bellville", but now he's become godlike. Yes, if I ever switch careers and become an atronomer, the first planet I discover will be named "Chomet." I don't want to speak too much about this film, except to urge you to make the effort to go and see it. Support it. Hug it. Send it flowers and love letters. If you'll excuse me, I have to go and finish watching the live action Tati in "Mon Uncle". (Hooray for Netflix streaming!)
