The Illusionist (L'illusionniste) | 2010 | PG | - 1.2.0

In this animated feature, a French illusionist finds himself out of work and travels to Scotland, where he meets a young woman who joins him on his journey. Their shared adventures change both of their lives. With the voices of Jean-Claude Donda, Eilidh Rankin and Duncan MacNeil. Directed by Sylvain Chomet. In French and Gaelic with English subtitles. [1:20]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A young woman and a young man hold hands and kiss. A woman wearing a low-cut dress leads a man into a hotel room (sex is implied). A young woman kisses an older man on the cheek.
 A man's kilt flaps in the wind and it almost lifts to expose his behind, but only shows the backs of his upper thighs. A woman is seen wearing a form-fitting dress with an open back. A woman wears a low-cut cleavage exposing a tube-style dress. Several men are seen wearing tight unitards on multiple occasions. A group of women are seen dressed in one-piece bathing suits. We see a drawing of a photograph of a baby girl wearing a diaper. Two men are seen on different occasions playfully posing holding a bra.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Several boys are seen kicking and hitting a man lying on the ground, until two police officers come and the boys run away.
 We see a man standing on a chair with a cord wrapped around his neck, implying he is about to hang himself, but a young woman interrupts him.
 Throughout the movie, a rabbit bites people that attempt to pick it up, including biting a man on the hand repeatedly; the rabbit bites a young woman on the hand, she drops the rabbit, it hits a table and then falls on the ground with a thud and hops away unharmed.
 A young woman walks into a busy street, cars swerve to avoid hitting her and honk their horns. We see the aftermath of a car and a truck crashing into one another; the car has a missing bumper, the truck is partially crumpled and the passengers are unharmed.
 A man hits his head on a sink with a thud. We hear a man cracking his back, as he stands upright. A woman stumbles over a rabbit. A man slips as he walks up a hill and he stands up unharmed. A man drops to his back and rolls down a hill, laughing. A young woman stumbles as she walks out of a room. A young woman stumbles as she tries to walk in high-heeled shoes. A man steps on the toes of two men and they jump backwards. A young woman playfully slaps the hand of a man.
 We hear indecipherable shouting between two men behind a door. We watch a man shout at another man (it's indecipherable). A man shouts at another man over the phone and the man slams the phone down.
 We see a woman in the background holding a goose upside down, presumably dead and ready to be carved. It is implied that a man believes a young woman killed a rabbit and made it into stew; the rabbit is discovered moments later, unharmed.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
