5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Masterpiece, 9 July 2012
This review is from: The Artist [DVD] (DVD)
The Artist is simply breath-taking. It oozes class and quality throughout and is an absolute triumph. Throughout the film the attention to details is nothing short of superb.

Jean Durjadin, who plays the fallen star George Valetin, is fully deserving of his Oscar. His portrayal of a man fallen from super stardom is filled with tragedy and heart break. His simple movements and expressive face speaks volumes. Everything about the production of this films shows much love and adoration for how films used to be made. The 20's and 30's are bought to life with such verve you can't help but be swept along with it. A simple story told with simple effects but with a modern twist. An example being the scene where George Valetin is having a nightmare with the resounding and jarring sounds that suddenly echo throughout his mind is effective and unsettling.

The accompanying music throughout the film suits the mood perfectly and helps draw you in. There really is no fault in this film and it should be watched and cherished by all.

The don't make them like they used too, until now!!

The best part of the accompanying music was stolen from another film.

Doesn't all form of art "borrow" from others from time to time? This is how art progresses.I just felt in this instance the choice suited the film well. Of course this is all just my own opinion though.
