Hi, everyone! Today we are bringing you the latest award winning magic documentary: The Great Pretender, by Nestor Frenkel. It explores the life of René Lavand, one of the most importants magicians of the last century. René Lavand is a world-famous Argentinean illusionist specializing in card tricks. He creates his illusions with his left hand only, having lost his right hand in an accident when he was only a child. Far from letting himself be overcome by this incident, he devoted himself to master the sleight of hand and would turn into one of the greatest illusionists of all times.However, the power of his shows does not lie in his physical peculiarities but in the astonishing stories that frame his illusions and his masterful use of pause and silence as a dramatic element.The Great Pretender is the warm, laid-back and intimate portrait of a unique artist who, at times, seems to lay his masks down and reveal his true self. This special edition includes more than seventy minutes of extra material which was not shown on theatres. So you only have to make popcorn and lay down to enjoy this wonderful movie!
