Ben lives with his family in a cozy house in the woods. His dad is a real enthusiastic guy, but so clumsy he loses his job as a forest ranger. One day Ben and his dad go to a magic show featuring the fabulous illusionist Hans Smid. From that moment on, Ben knows what he wants to do: be a magician. Ben and his dad perfect their own magic act with the assistance of Sylvie, a new girl in school. Ben's dad builds a special magic cabinet for Sylvie to disappear out of. Stikker and Son magicians are a big success! But when Sylvie vanishes for good, everyone thinks Ben's dad is responsible for her disappearance. The media are making a circus out of the story, and Sylvie's rich parents are out for blood. Ben must find out the truth behind the illusion and save Sylvie, his dad, and his family. THE MAGICIANS is an exciting movie that will keep you guessing until the end. (In Dutch with subtitles) –B.B.
