The Illusionist is an American romantic mystery film written and directed by Neil Burger and starring Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti, and Jessica Biel. It is based loosely on Steven Millhauser's short story, "Eisenheim the Illusionist". The film tells the story of Eisenheim, a magician in fin de siecle Vienna, who reunites with his childhood love, a woman far above his social standing. The film also depicts a fictionalized version of the Mayerling Incident. The film was a commercial and critical success.

The Illusionist features an original score by acclaimed modern minimalist composer Philip Glass. Glass' renowned restrained, yet elegant style has captivated audiences around the world for years. "The soundtrack to The Illusionist is a driving force to the movie," comments director Neil Burger.

Philip Glass, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, chooses a sweeping simplicity and proves the age-old statement that less is more. His score for the film The Illusionist was widely acclaimed upon its release in 2006. The music for the film evokes the feeling of mystery and wonder that surrounds the famous magician Eisenheim and it is performed brilliantly by the Czech Film Orchestra under the baton of Michael Riesman.
