Animated Discussions: When Tati Is Animated As "The Illusionist"

So having come so late to the films of  Jacques Tati... it may not be surprising that I do enjoy Sylvain Chomet's hand-drawn animated feature film "The Illusionist" less than his earlier film "Belleville Rendez-vous" (aka "The Triplets of Bellville"). But I do watch a clip again and see that not only is it based on a script by Tati - it be true homage to Tati. The portrayal of Tati as The Illusionist is wonderful.

You can read a Daily Telegraph interview (complete with film clip) with Chomet here.

And you can read my summary of the earlier "Belleville Rendez-vous" here.

Here endeth my discussion of Tati...
