This movie kind of surprised me, and I was actually impressed -- I liked it. I liked the story a lot, and I was surprised by the ending, and liked the ending too. Although there were a few scenes where you could say "How’s that possible?"

Don’t confuse this with The Prestige which appeared about the same time. The Prestige is the one with the two brothers. This is a good movie with the story about a late 1800s magician from humble origins reconnecting with his childhood gentry sweetheart who is engaged to a malevolent Austrian prince. The main character is, in fact, the chief of police who has to straddle the line between following orders to rein in the magician, and a grudging admiration for the magician and dislike for the prince. A good film for those who like magic, plots with historical references and settings, surprise endings, interesting filming styles, but everything being plausible to reality in the end. It’s interesting it seems to be mostly an eastern European production but you don’t realize that until you come to the credits.
