A darling at this year’s 2011 Cannes Film Festival, The Artist is a black and white love song to silent cinema, and movies. Directed by Michel Hazanavicius (the OSS 117 films), The Artist tells the story of George Valentin (Jean Dujardin, best actor at Cannes) a very successful silent movie star who meets Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), a young extra, and helps her on her way up the Hollywood ladder. But when talking pictures arrive, disaster strikes not only George’s career but also the blossoming romance between the two. A visually stunning film with arresting performances, The Artist perfectly captures the silent film era while staying relevant today.
