Utterly enchanting old-fashioned animation of Jacques Tati story

'The Illusionist': Sylvain Chomet's beautifully evocative animation is an homage to Jacques Tati

Sylvain Chomet’s hand-drawn animation of a previously unproduced Jacques Tati story is a delight in every way, in which the French film-maker pays homage to the great man by making him the illusionist of the title. He is unmistakably Tati - all elbows and angles, and, of course, distinctive bottom and nose.
