Yesterday I saw "De Wisselwachter" (a.k.a. "The Poinstman") and I found that feature an overrated boredom, with a different but uninteresting story that goes nowhere.
Today I have decided to give a second chance to the cult Dutch director Jos Stelling and see "De Illusionist" (a.k.a. "The Illusionist"), and what seemed to be impossible happened: this awful movie is worse than "The Poinstman"! The later movie has a storyline that resumes the whole story; therefore at least it is possible to write a short plot summary.
"The Illusionist" does not have even a storyline, and the reader may check that there is no synopsis in IMDb since there is no plot and no lines, only a collection of senseless images.
The most impressive is that this overrated flick was awarded in Netherlands Film Festival and in São Paulo International Film Festival inclusive with the prize of Best Feature. Honestly, what type of jury and audience could select this awful movie? My vote is one (awful and lowest IMDb User Rating).
Title (Brazil): "O Ilusionista" ("The Illusionist")
