The Prestige, the plot
As anticipated, the film is set in late 19th century London and tells the story of two magicians, Alfred Borden And Robert Angier, friends and colleagues. When Julia, Robert’s wife, dies during a scuba escape number, Robert blames Albert for her death and from that moment an unprecedented rivalry begins between the two, which meanwhile take different paths.
Angier begins to perform under the stage name “The great Danton“, Borden instead is known by the name“ The Professor ”. Between the two the rivalry grows more and more and this game to demonstrate who is better will both be able to sabotage the other’s numbers with very serious consequences. Borden in fact often performs a dangerous number: “The bullet catcher“, One day Angier, disguised as a spectator will tamper with the weapon that is used in the issue and will cause the loss of two fingers of Borden’s left hand.
Borden thus decides to take revenge, in a cycle of endless sabotage. Meanwhile, the latter becomes very famous thanks to the new number, “The Human Transport”, in which the illusionist disappears and then reappears in another part of the stage, giving the effect of teleportation. Angier is therefore obsessed with discovering the trick used by his rival and through his assistant Olivia, he will discover that behind Borden’s numbers there could be scientific experiments carried out by the scientist Nikola Tesla.
