The Great Pretender (aka El Gran Simulador)René Lavand - DVD
- Send to a Friend
|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.
