Reviews
Mine: This movie was stunning in many aspects. Visually in terms of locations, inside and out, there was great consistency and a nothing seemed strained. The story weaved fluidly through these locations and seemed to make the locales a vital part of the story. Ed Norton was mesmerizing, a superb performance that allowed the story to unfold seemingly at his discretion. Biel was very believable and stunningly beautiful. Paul Giamatti played an admirable role and took the viewer by surprise in many elements of the story. The story was fresh and imaginative, very intriguing. Not as predictable as you would think.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: In turn-of-the-century Vienna, a magician uses his abilities to secure the love of a woman far above his social standing.
