Movie synopsis: Tatischeff is an aging magician and all that he has left from past fame is a white rabbit and a few tricks that have been surpassed by modern technology. However, there's still one little girl who believes that he is the greatest magician in the world. And Tatischeff is willing to do anything for the dark eyes to avoid seeing them disappointed. This duo, along with a rabbit in a hat, embark on a journey to magical success in a society that has stopped believing in magic. Animator and director Sylvain Chomet found inspiration in a script by comedian Jacques Tati and created a visually enchanting, fragile and touching story of fatherly love and belief in happy endings.
