The Artist

Silent movie star George Valentin bemoans the coming era of talking pictures and fades into oblivion and self-destruction, but finds sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer lighting up talkies like no one else.

Outside a movie premiere, enthusiastic fan Peppy Miller literally bumps into the swashbuckling hero of the silent film, George Valentin. The star reacts graciously and Peppy plants a kiss on his cheek as they are surrounded by photographers. The headlines demand: "Who's That Girl?" and Peppy is inspired to audition for a dancing bit-part at the studio. However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin's world upside-down.

new breath to an old technique

funny, sad, and so, so, classic!

A hugely entertaining jewel

It is odd to find a black-and-white, silent film in this age of dazzling colours and insane sound as is usually found in a film. Therefore this film is at a disadvantage. But it makes up for it in brilliant direction, writing, acting and everything else. You, as the viewer, comes to care and understand the characters. You laugh and cry with them. All the while you are entertained by the sheer charm of the entire film. It isn't the best of 2011, and it shouldn't have won the Oscar. But it is very good, and nobody who has watched it will lightly forget it. Checkout!
