The Artist

Directed by Michel Hazanavicius
France, Belgium, 2011
Silent, Romance


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!

Critics reviews

A vision that looks almost entirely bogus to me, stylistically and in terms of period details. . . . How can one take seriously a film that contrives to express the sadness of the end of silent cinema in 1929 by using Bernard Herrmann’s music for Vertigo, a film made almost 30 years later, on the soundtrack? The employment of this music was a deal-breaker, making it impossible for me to take the film seriously.
