The Illusionist

Book/ Film: The Illusionist
Genre: Mystery-Romance
Author/ Director: Steven Millhouser/Neil Burger
Characters/ Actors: Edward Norton, Jessica Biel, Paul Giamatti.

The Illusionist is the story of a man called Eisenheim who as a young boy fell in love with a countess but their love was forbbided. Fifteen years later, they met again and by this time, he was a succesful magician. But some problems come when he founds out that she was engaged with the crown prince of Austria.
In my oppinion, this is a great film. It has a little bit of every genre, the romantic story is beautiful and it also catches your attention the hole time. The ending is surprising and it explained all the conclusions I had made in my mind.
It's really enjoyable and entertaining.
