The Artist is a completely unique and hugely enjoyable silent film, that is both a love-letter to the silent age it is set in, and a beautiful piece of filmmaking that is very relevant to modern times.
Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin (Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar.
The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion.
But for young extra Peppy Miller (Bejo), it seems the sky’s the limit and major movie stardom awaits. The Artist tells the story of their interlinked destinies.
“Packed with more wit, passion and invention than all of the films in any given multiplex combined”-Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall, ‘Must See’
