Very polished...very well done.
27 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the film begins, a master magician is performing a trick in front of his audience. However, while locked in a trunk attempting to escape, he suffers a heart attack and dies. The next scene, the family learns that the magician saved very little money and they are advised to sell his magical collection and so they have a sale. Late in the day, a man arrives and seems to think that magic is all a lot of hooey- -and the magician's son manages to impress the man with a few tricks of his own.

This film was perhaps one of the best looking shorts I saw at the Orlando Film Festival. The sets and costumes were amazingly good and the film had a lovely cinematic quality to it. The acting was also very nice. But, like the other films, it was just so very short and it left me wanting more--which I hope we soon see from these filmmakers.
