De illusionist (The Illusionist)

Edition 1984
90' - 1983 - Comedy
Director: Jos Stelling Composer: Willem Breuker With: Freek de Jonge, Jim van der Woude, Catrien Wolthuizen
At the center of this extremely visualized narrative are the illusionist and his brother, who is lazy on the basis of either great love, or exorbitant envy of the brother. Having spoiled the sick son in a psychiatric hospital, the mother blesses the illusionist on a long journey with one suitcase. The ensuing whirlwind of events drags the heroes deeper into his turbulent whirlpool.
