It may be a gimmick movie but if all gimmick movies were as loving and beautiful as this I wouldn't care. A perfect tribute to a lost movie form that sadly the world needs even more today if only people would dare let it in to their hearts and overcome the fact that it is both silent and in black and white. Timeless, pure and simple even when it drowns us with sentimentalism.

Awarded by the profession, who likes to look in a mirror, this time in a rear-view mirror
Singing in the rain wannabe. Very well produced with a poor of storyline, but portraits the 20's with dignity. It was a good idea bringing back the nostalgic silent cinema, all the costumes, the music and stuff.Dujardin and bejo even try, but there s no chemistry or simpathy at all.
This is an absolutely brilliant masterpiece of a film. It was a big risk in 2011 to release a silent film. It really captured the essence of the time. No words are really necessary because everything comes off very clearly. It is really something when you can be so intrigued by a film without any words. There is a reason it won Best Picture at the Oscars, and that is because it is one of the best films of the decade.
