Trick Brain

Kalle Nio

Three magicians repeat the same magic trick again and again. The film delves into the essence of magic. How is the illusion of magic created? What is a magic trick? Will magic cease to exist if you see the trick repeatedly? If so, what will be left of it? The film lends its name from Dariel Fitzkee’s book The Trick Brain (1944), where the author listed all known magic tricks and their methods.
