The Prestige

I watched a movie yesterday, The Prestige, with Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Michael Caine. Scarlett Johansson appears in a Cameo. The film is about two illusionists (Jackman and Bale) who are competing about the best trick. The film is set in the late 19'th century in London, and it's intriguing how the actors can speak English with an American accent. Then I would like to state that all movies (and literature for that matter) is a result of the time in which it was made and not about the time in which it's set. Thus, the most interesting scene was when Hugh Jackman stood on stage and spoke out to the public and said something about the times that was about to change radically. This may be a dire prediction for the year 2007.

The Prestige is the best film of 2006 and the only film I can think that would make it take second place would be The Fountain but I cannot comment too much on that as it not due to be shown in the uk until the end of January - Hugh Jackman of course must be actor of the year. All the characters he plays are so wonderfully handled by his emense talent and his lovely lilty Aussie accent is never heard - what can I say
