Hi Cheety,
The Illusionist was great. It was beautifully filmed and its rare that they make this type of movie these days. Everyone that was in the screening I was at applauded at the end. It was a really nice love story as well. The magic just tied it all together. They use some computer stuff to enhance some effects but it was well done and enjoyable. The Prestige is finally being advertised on tv here in New York. It will have a big opening on October 20. (I predict). It looks really good. Very different premise than The Illusionist. You may get to see it before you see The Illusionist in Sri Lanka just because The Illusionist was more of a small independent release that did not get a lot of advertising and was released in fewer venues. The Prestige is a big nationwide release though. There is a foreign film out also (on DVD) that was made a few years ago named Simon the Magician. I saw it at the videostore and when I read the back of it, it sounded like a french version of The Prestige. I don't know if anyone else has seen it or heard of it???
