While this film is overly-lengthy with long, drawn out dramatic scenes, to its credit it has a totally unique plot and storyline that makes it worth the watch. There are plot twists aplenty with no strings left hanging. The magician theme adds a bit of mystery to this, while the overall mystery keeps the story going nearly to the end.
I do feel the lead male part was played by an actor who looked far too young and innocent for the depth of the part played. That was a casting decision and I believe the wrong one; his youthful appearance (for me) disrupted the reality-index throughout the entire film.
Aside from that the film was well done, and a few of the sets rather awesome considering the lack of visible CGI. All in all a decent story and worth viewing.
