The Artist

Several words have been used to describe this movie since its release. Classic. Gem. Masterpiece.

I have to agree on all counts.

This is a magnificent production, if not just for the fact that the leads are so perfect for their roles, but for the music, which brought out every minuscule emotion that you could not hear them voice themselves through speech.

Based in the late twenties and early thirties, the movie focuses on the end of silent movies and the beginning of talking pictures. “Talkies”, as it is referred to in the movie.

Jean Dujardin’s face, that smile, that mustache, that goof, makes him the perfect man to be cast. Berenice Bejo’s style also compliments perfectly. She is a future Chanel spokeswoman.

With an excellent supporting cast that includes the brilliant John Goodman, beautiful Missi Pyle and Penelope Ann Miller, it is worth a watch and should be treasured in our memory archives.
