Format: Blu-ray
The Picture Quality of this release is one the best I've watched, and this is no minor feat for a movie with great amount of nightime scenes or scenes in dark theaters, in which blacks are solid and no noise is noticeable.

The aspect ratio is 1:85:1, which is the original, as detailed on [...].

The sound is robust (I heard the 5.1 DTS-HD master). Sounds are strong, dialogues are clear, and Phillip Glass' music is well enhanced.

Since it's a bare bones release (as most Alliance blu-rays have been), you can't escape the feeling that this is a "provisional" BD, something that you will have to replace with whatever edition they release in the United States or somewhere else. But if you're not a friend of extras and bonus materials, and don't even need subtitles of any kind, this is a good option.

Other options for audio are: English 5.1 Dolby Digital and French 5.1 Dolby Digital.

I bought this DVD by chance. Mostly because of Edward Norton whose acting is always first rate, and partly because of its setting being in Vienna. And what a pleasant surprise it was! I just love everything about this film. There are not many movies on the list of my favorites, but The Illusionist has become one of them after the first viewing.

I recommend it to everybody.

The Illusionist film is a movie that my husband first introduced me to around 2006/2007 when we were living in Florida and it was great to watch the Illusionist together again this week. The Illusionist features a movie trailer to Gray Matters and the movie itself is a deep and complicated history between the characters of Duchess Sophie Von Teschen (Jessica Biel) and Eisenheim The Illusionist (Edward Norton). Duchess Sophie Von Teschen is set to marry the emotionally cold but intellectually gifted Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). I do completely accept that Sewell was just putting his best in the role, it was just that I was extremely shocked by how his Prince Leopold character is required to treat Eisenheim’s character and that of his wife Sophie so abrasively just because he can. Chief Inspector Walter Uhl (Paul Giamatti) is Crown Prince Leopold’s right hand man who is required to start spying on Eisenheim after a witness tattles on Eisenheim and Duchess Sophie immediately after they are spotted simply just talking in a carriage together.

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on March 25 2007
Format: DVD
Young Sophie (Eleanor Tomlinson) upper class is enamored of budding illusionist, son of a carpenter, a (Aaron Johnson.) They are forcibly separated. Destined to meet again in the future as Edward Norton and Jessica Biel, their actions may have an effect of the future history of Europe.

I guess as an audience we are jaded with the onslaught of ghost stories and "seeing dead people" that the story and outcome is predictable, not that anyone took too much effort to hide. At least a fact or a butler did not pop out of the closet at the last minute.

However, the presentation was excellent with the film having a slight flicker gives a hand cranked quality to it. Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) tells the story in third person. The music that accompanies the film was by Philip Glass. Once again, Rufus Sewell (Fortinbras "Hamlet -1996") does an excellent portrayal of Crown Prince Leopold.

i really liked this movie.it held my interest right to the very end.it's a much more complex movie than it seems at 1st glance.there is some depth to both the story and the characters.Jessica Biel,in particular impressed me with the deph she brought to her character,proving she can hold her own with some heavyweights in the industry.the movie is set mostly in Vienna,sometime in the 19th century,if i'm correct,and i thought that was a very appropriate setting for this movie.Vienna seems like it would be a romantic city,and the movie is a romance at its core,but also much more than that.it also contains plenty of intrigue and suspense.these elements all work very well together in this movie,at least i think so.i also liked the ending.it was low key,almost anti climatic,but it works."The Illusionist" gets a strong 4/5 from me.

I have never written a review for a film before, but The Illusionist is definitely worth the effort. If you like period films, and this is a good one; if you just like a really good movie, it's all that, too! Masterful acting from Edward Norton (we would expect nothing less from him), Jessica Biel, and Paul Giamatti. Rufus Sewell does an excellent job in making us hate his guts as the Crown Prince. This film is well directed and beautiful to behold. A tastefully done love story, with interesting twists and turns, that makes the whole experience pure `magic'.

Gawd, I loved this movie - second time I watched it - it's intense and Edward Norton plays the part so well.
and he gets the best of the royalty - good movie to get - you watch it intently and no talking and
a few gasps I really enjoyed it and watching after a long time, you catch everything he does but how,
have to figure that out, if one can. Good movie.
