FISM award-winner Boris Wild is one of the most renowned French magicians in the world. From Hollywood and Las Vegas to Monte Carlo, Sydney, Tokyo and beyond, Boris' original and creative approach to card magic has taken him to some of the most prestigious venues on five continents where he has received standing ovations.

Now, it's your turn to watch and learn Boris Wild's favorite creations as he reveals them for the very first time on video in this amazing DVD set. You'll witness astounding, truly miraculous card magic using his outstanding, world-famous BW Marked Deck. Boris will teach you every single detail of his ingenious system as well as incredibly clean routines that will fool you badly and, after you learn them, will leave your audiences shaking their heads! One of them, Pure Telepathy, is considered by international experts to be "one of the most beautiful and theatrical card revelations in the world." You'll also learn the wonderfully deceptive Kiss Count, in addition to many highly-visual applications using this new technique. There's a colorful combination of cards and silks set to music, a spectator's kiss on an impossible journey to a signed card, and a fantastic, multi-phase routine combining All Backs, Triumph and Wild Card!

These three DVDs also feature a super-clean revelation of a thought-of card in mid-air, a unique prediction of a movie, plus Boris' best-selling effects including Miracolor, his diabolical Wild Monte, Very Wild!, and WPT, two eye-popping transformations of cards that will knock you dead. And there's more...!

The performances are fun and entertaining to watch and the secrets behind it all do not require difficult sleight of hand. The moves, principles and methods rely mostly on subtlety and cleverness. Boris explains everything in detail with clear step-by-step instructions, valuable tips, a pinch of theory, and in-depth psychological aspects in their own dedicated segment.

Boris Wild's Remarkable Card Magic gathers original, visual, strong effects that lovers of great card magic will enjoy immensely...and spectators will love even more!

I have to agree with Michael on having mixed feelings about it. There are some parts that will probably not make sense to you, or that you will never consider using, but I think that this is very common to happen, hardly ever you will use absolutely everything from a book or a DVD. So I think that in general, this is a great material to learn Boris' material, and mostly to get a further knowledge on his marked deck, and to learn other principles and concepts.

I have really mixed feelings on this one. I will start by telling you what I like, which I think is more important in this case. First, the material. For one thing, there is a LOT of it. The set is over seven hours long, so you get a few dozen individual items, and some utility type things around the cull, some counts, the Mem and Marked system of Boris Wild, and even some odds and ends around gaff construction and things like that. And obviously this is what you are buying it for. So while some of these do not stand out, others are very strong, and I am confident that people will get a few things that they will probably like and use out of this series. There are several effects that were marketed as stand-alone items previously, and you learn the ins and outs of these also. I was particularly fond of the kiss count, which I was not familiar with previously, Miracolor, Inexplicable, Very Wild & WPT, and especially Pure Telepathy. So with that amount of good material, I am happy with the set and my purchase.

The bad. Boris is clearly a very skilled performer, and a really creative guy. But the performances and explanations were flat to the point of being painfully boring. I have never previously fallen asleep while watching magic of any kind, but this set broke my streak. Both the performances and explanations were way too wordy and felt like they went on far too long. As long as this set is, I feel at least a couple hours could have been cut out and it would have improved the experience. The old L&L audience may have been partly to blame, as the setting seemed dull overall, and I think even the audience appeared bored at several points. So perhaps just an attempt to get too much on here, or capture too many hours of material or whatever, but at points I had to step away in annoyance before returning.

So, bottom line, the material is good, but the length of the set is seriously inflated, and will take some patience and perseverance to get through. I frankly would not have been happy had I paid full price for this, and if you look at sets similar in price and run time, I would recommend something like Joshua Jay’s Talk about Tricks before this one. I say this (I hope) with all respect to Boris, but overall the presentation of the material was a serious negative in the case of this set.
