Movie Review: The Artist

08 Apr 2012

This silent Oscar-winner just wasn't for Kris

Starring: Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo

This movie wasn’t for me but maybe it’s for you. For a while I thought my speakers were broken because there was no sound. It wasn’t until afterwards that I realised this was a SILENT MOVIE! Yes, it’s 2012, when we have sound on fridges, but not on movies, apparently. The director wanted to re-create what actors like George Valentin went through when sound was introduced into films. It’s won about a billion awards, so you decide whether I’m right or wrong!
