The Illusionist - Nichts ist wie es scheint

Wien um 1900: Mit seinen fantastischen Vorstellungen macht sich der Illusionist Eisenheim zur lebenden Legende. Auf der Höhe seiner Kunst beschwört er den Geist der gerade ermordeten Herzogin Sophie. Doch bevor die Erscheinung den Namen ihres Mörders nennen kann, wird Eisenheim von Inspektor Uhl verhaftet. Was niemand ahnt: Die Herzogin war zwar die Verlobte von Kronprinz Leopold, aber auch die heimliche Liebe des Magiers. Wurde sie das Opfer des Machtkampfes zwischen dem Thronfolger und dem rätselhaften Meister der Täuschung? Nichts ist wie es scheint, die Grenzen zwischen Magie und Wirklichkeit verschwimmen.

L'Illusionniste

Vienne, dans les années 1900. Surgit un jour le charismatique et mystérieux illusionniste Eisenheim, qui ne tarda pas à devenir l'homme le plus célèbre de la ville, l'incarnation vivante d'une magie à laquelle personne n'osait plus croire... Mais la gloire d'Eisenheim est intolérable au Prince héritier Leopold, dont la popularité décroît à mesure que grandit celle de ce showman consommé. Rationaliste convaincu, avide de pouvoir, le Prince a une raison supplémentaire de jalouser Eisenheim : ce dernier fut le grand amour de jeunesse de sa fiancée, la belle Sophie von Teschen, qui nourrit encore pour lui de très tendres sentiments. Décidé à écarter ce rival, Leopold charge son homme de confiance, l'inspecteur Uhl, d'enquêter sur l'illusionniste et de dévoiler ses impostures. Une partie serrée s'engage entre les deux hommes...

The Illusionist - L'illusionista

Siamo all'inizio del XX secolo, in Austria. Eisenheim è un adolescente innamorato (e ricambiato) della bella Sophie: la ragazza però, è promessa sposa del Principe Leopoldo, erede al trono. I due sono costretti a separarsi ed Eisenheim scompare dalla circolazione. Quindici anni dopo, il ragazzo è cresciuto e strega Vienna con spettacoli nei quali mette in mostra le sue incredibili doti di illusionista: una sera incontra Sophie, e l'amore si riaccende, ma il Principe Leopoldo, aiutato dall'Ispettore Generale Uhl, capo della Polizia, fa di tutto per stroncare una volta per tutte la relazione.
