This is a Hungarian movie made in France about a famous magician with supernatural powers, who is called in by the French police to solve a murder. He does that without much problem, but then the movie goes off in a different direction showing kind of a fish out of water, and Simon being challenged by another well known magician to survive being buried underground for three days. Inbetween, there's kind of a silly love story where he seems to fall in love with a young lady, and the language barrier sets up some pretty humorous moments. I didn't like the ending at all, but all in all, this is a pretty entertaining movie. Excellent soundtrack with Beethoven's 7th Symphony, Bartok, and Brian Eno used very effectively along with a little Massive Attack. I would recommend it just to see the excellent performances.
