The second film in as many months about magic in early 20th century Europe, The Illusionist is odder and more romantic than Christopher Nolan's superior The Prestige, telling an old fashioned story of a master magician Eisenheim's (Norton) attempts to beat the violence and corruption of the age he lives in.
