I think this movie is overrating. Okay. Thats unique, but the story is too flat.

A true masterpiece! A great throwback to the Golden Age of Cinema and a wonderful film in general. It has a great sense humor and it is very charming. Go see it!

A unique silent film concerning the business of silent films, and how one megawatt talent (Jean Dujardin) experiences the changing of times as his once prominent career is thrust into oblivion as a talent he helped along the way (Berenice Bejo) starts to see her career explode, a...

An absolute delight from start to finish. It`s beyond superb. An ingenious and deeply moving film filled with heart, humor and vision. A masterpiece of a film that returns to the heart and soul of the silent film, showing that body language and facial reactions were the way to em...

George Valentin: With pleasure.
Even with all the praise and accolades this movie received, I still didn't know exactly what to expect. I've wanted to see The Artist for a long time now, but I wasn't sure how well I'd like it. Of all small amount of silent films I'd seen, I had...
