With his eye on a lovely aristocrat, a gifted illusionist named Eisenheim uses his powers to win her away from her betrothed, a crown prince. But Eisenheim's scheme creates tumult within the monarchy and ignites the suspicion of a dogged inspector.
It's very easy to like this film. Edward Norton is such a fantastic actor and doesn't disappoint you in this one either. The story is quite good and although the ending is easy to guess it doesn't really matter in this film. I would have hated it to end in any other way. Very easy to watch, a great choice for a good relaxing evening in good company.
