Eisenheim: I was meant to return… I just… I kept thinking I’ll find around the next corner…
Sophie: What?
Eisenheim: A real mystery. I saw remarkable things but the only mystery I never   solved was… why my heart couldn’t let go of you 

It’s a very small world. A very comforting yet dreadful idea at the same time. It gives hope to those who would want to rekindle love and friendship, or even family ties. It also serves as a lifetime punishment to fugitives of betrayal, revenge and lies. I hear The Godfather’s theme song playing here.

Some nuggets of thoughts from The Illusionist;

  1. Edward Norton never looks old over these years.

  2. If ever offered to play the role of a vampire, Jessica Biel’s would fit. Would she be as good as Kate Beckinsale? It’s quite hard to tell for Kate has got nice vampire eyes and lips.

  3. Herr Eisenheim can give me The Orange Tree manual book if he wants but I still couldn’t be able to follow the damn instructions.

  4. All of us loved the ‘secret’ locket and wants one. 

  5. Orientals make good employees. Evidence : guard theatre house properly and doesn’t reveal Eisenheim’s secret.

  6. My favourite magic trick was the ‘slow vertical fall of the orange’ and 2nd fav is the Excalibur performance.

  7. Assuming true illusionists doesn’t use Satan or Genies from magic lamps, I’d say they’re really talented and gifted.

  8. Everyone loves goof, right? See that Eisenheim’s eye colour is different as an adult than when he was a child.

beautiful movie.. tapi mcm dpt agak ending dia tu. dah tgk ‘The Prestige’ ker? lebih kurang gak citer magic (christian bale ngan hugh jackman). tapi bagi aku ‘The Prestige’ agak ‘dark’ sikit.
