Storyline

Night Magic, a musical fantasy, is set on earth but it is also about the heavens. At the centre of it all is Michael, a music hall artist, who finds Judy, an angel that epitomizes the woman of his dreams at the System Theatre where he is about to open his new show. For Michael it is just another show along the road but once inside something happens. The night is full of possibilities- full of love and romance, jealousy and infidelity, music and dance, even good and evil. Most of all it is full of magic. Written by Anonymous

10 August 2004 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie involves a fair amount of talent, both in front of and behind the camera but little of that transcends to the finished product. The movie has no real coherent narrative. It deals with a man, Mancuso, putting together a show at a theater. He receives inspiration from a trio of angels. One of these angels, Laure (who looks great, as usual and is probably the best part of the movie)falls in love with him and becomes human so that she can be his wife (echoes of "The Little Mermaid") The movie is basically a rock opera with little spoken dialogue. Most of the music isn't even that memorable and the general tone is more European than Canadian. Night Magic seems so offbeat and experimental, that it makes you wonder what sort of audience the film makers were hoping to attract.
