Albert Goshman is one of my heroes in magic. He was one of the first magicians I saw at a conference and by far the most magical. When I heard that Dominique Duvivier was doing an act in homage to Goshman, I had to have it. Of course, "to have it" then meant having to see him again. With four DVDs and over seven hours of content, it's no small feat.

The first DVD contains the show. It starts with a tour of Dominique which was quite disconcerting, even though he didn't finish it. It was a kind of joke for magicians, but it was still an effective magic trick. Then we go into short video segments of the people who influenced the show. You've probably heard some of these names: Fred Kaps, Ken Brooke, Max Maven, Michael Weber, Ricky Jay, Bro. John Hamman. If you don't know these names, search for them here on MyLovelyAssistant, buy books and close your $^*@ing web browser until you've done your homework.

The first effect in the series is a single take of Any Drink Called For. A blank deck of cards with the names of alcoholic beverages written on both sides as an introduction and display. Each side of each card is different. One of them is chosen at random. The liquor named on one side of the card ends up matching the contents of a glass that was in a locked box, in full view since the beginning of the show. The liqueur on the other side is in a liqueur glass from the artist's pocket, which has been proven to be empty by having one of the assistants remove and replace the key and lock from the box.

What follows is a sequence of cards that defies explanation. It appears that the artist makes no effort. The people who help him find and name the cards selected by members of the audience, apparently without any help from Dominic. Unfortunately, the sequence that follows gives a bit of method in the first segment. I would have stopped at the "miracle" phase.

Then we move on to the coins with a unique routine of Copper, Silver, Brass followed by a purse coin and a cross coin with a surprise ending.

The second act begins with a long and complex set up to... the production of a small ball from a very large bag. You probably think I'm having fun or making a joke. No, my friend, it was one of the most amazing things about the game. The small ball is then used in a cutting routine... with a solid cup... which then detaches to create another cup... which is also solid. It's hard to explain, but it's very cool to watch and extremely deceptive.

That's enough of that! I don't want to give it all away. If what I've written so far hasn't whetted your appetite, I guess this DVD is not for you. For those of you who are interested, there is still 45 minutes of material left to see. In fact, most of what remains is Dominque's tribute to Goshman, which begins with a beautiful, sincere and very humble introduction.

Dominique Duvivier embodies so many of the things that made Goshman wonderful to look at, but he remains unique and true to himself and his own talents and personality. The show is more like a conversation between friends than a performance. The magic happens all around him. We become a part of this magical world, not just a spectator.

The teaching segments are wonderfully detailed. Dominique goes through every little detail. He talks about how to make the most of his help. And most importantly, he explains why he made the decisions he did. He covers everything from technique to prop management to psychology. Don't worry if you don't understand French; the translator is very good at conveying not only ideas, but also passion.

Translation by Bertrand Gille:
Albert Goshman is one of my heroes in magic. He was one of the first magicians that I was able to attend a conference. By far the most magical. As soon as I heard that Dominique Duvivier was doing a number in homage to Goshman, I wanted to have it. Of course, "to have it" also meant seeing it and commenting on it. With 4 DVDs for more than seven hours of video it was no small feat.
The first DVD contains the show. Dominique starts with a rather bluffing trick, even if he didn't finish it. It was a kind of "joke for magicians", but it still remains an effective magic.
Then begins a sequence showing several short videos of magicians who influenced the show.
You've probably already heard these names: Fred Kaps, Ken Brooke, Max Maven, Michael Weber, Ricky Jay, Brother John Hamman. If you don't know these names, then read books and close your "$^*@" browser until you've done your share of personal research.
The first effect of the show is a "drink on demand" effect. A blank game with liquor names written on both sides is clearly shown. Each side of each card has a different liquor name. One card is chosen randomly: The name of the liqueur on it corresponds to the contents of a glass kept in a locked safe and in full view of everyone since the beginning of the show. The name of the liqueur on the other side of the chosen card corresponds to the contents of a glass taken from Dominica's own pocket. This pocket had been shown to be clearly empty a few moments before, since a member of the audience had put his hand in it to get the key to open the box.
What follows is a sequence of cards that defies explanation. Apparently without the slightest effort, the people (from the audience) who assist him find and name the cards chosen by people from the audience. Unfortunately, the following sequence gives a clue to the explanation of the first phase. For my part, I will stick to the purely miraculous phase.
Then we go for a "copper, silver, brass" coin sequence followed by a journey of coins to a purse and "coin crossings" with a very surprising finale.
The second act begins with a long sequence to produce. a small ball from a big bag. You probably think I'm joking. "Non mon ami" (in French in the text), this was even one of the most amazing things of this set. The little ball is then used in a little chop cup routine. Chop cup which finally turns out to be a cup. Full! Which makes it possible to create another cup. just as full! It's hard to explain but really cool to watch and extremely bluffing!
That's enough! I don't want to tell you any more. If what I've already described hasn't definitely whetted your appetite, I conclude that this DVD is not for you. For others who might be interested, there are still 45 more minutes to discover. In fact, most of the remaining part is a tribute to Dominique Goshman, which starts with a beautiful introduction, sincere and very humble.
Dominique Duvivier embodies very well those things that made Goshman so pleasing to the eye while remaining true to himself, retaining his talent and his own personality. The performance is experienced more as a conversation between friends than as a show as such. We ourselves become part of this magical world, we are not only the spectators, but also the audience.
The explanatory parts are wonderfully detailed. Dominique has explored every little detail. He explains how to get the most out of his helpers (assistants) and, most importantly, he explains why he made a particular decision. It covers everything from material management to psychological aspects. Don't worry if you don't speak French well, the translation is very good and lets the ideas, but also the passion, show through! I

here are several small (minor) errors in my translation. it's the result of a "on-the-fly" translation. It's not very serious, but more importantly, I just saw that I made a rather amusing slip by making a translation error ...
Indeed, it reads:
"In fact, most of the remaining part is a tribute to Dominique Goshman, beginning with a beautiful introduction, sincere and very humble"
Dominique Goshman! Is this not proof by the slip of the tongue that the attempt to personalize/impregnate Goshman is successful beyond all hope?
Thanks again M. Duvivier :)
I loved this DVD set, especially your mania to look for efficiency in every detail. A real professional work. An Artist's work! (.)
Bertrand GILLE

When I read the articles about you across the Atlantic, I didn't think Americans liked you so much!
When we switched on the comparison between you and Mr. Goshman... It's quiet! We're lucky to have a French Goshman, gentlemen, according to the authors of the articles !!! Even Bertand Gille has made the amalgamation (around the 6th paragraph he writes "dominique Goshman") ! A simple typing mistake or a trick played by his mind (like a slip of the tongue...)
So there is no doubt (for those who still had some)! You are a great master of magic... (at least in my eyes, but I'm not the only one !)
So what is waiting for France, but especially for French magicians, to recognize you as such !
One of your many, even very many, fans,
best regards,
Nilton


Yes, I in the few towers I own my favorite is the printing shop.
the set of signatures
and storm under a skull
Then I have the Duvivier wallet, which is great.
the three dvd boxes I have (intimate 1 and 2 and melting pot) are really an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
I always take great pleasure in watching them again and again.
Even if I love gimmicks I find that the effects of Duvivier allow you to do beautiful things without really feeling like of a gimmick in your hands.
I don't consider Duvivier's products a gimmick.
