George Valentin is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller, it seems the sky’s the limit – major movie stardom awaits. The Artist tells the story of their interlinked destinies.

Our take

Michel Hazanavicius swept the Academy Awards® with this joyous love letter to cinema, a throwback tribute to the silent era that proved a feel-good phenomenon and worldwide triumph. Stylized, enchanted and crafted in the spirit of Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch. Magic!
