My View: The Artist

I went to see The Artist over the weekend. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. Filmed in black and white, The Artist is a romantic comedy about a silent film star whose career goes down the drain when talkies become popular. Brilliantly, the movie itself is a silent movie complete with raised eyebrows, title cards, and amazing music. 

Of course the dashing late 1920's / early 1930's costumes are worth seeing this film alone. I now want to wear flapper dresses and take tap dance lessons! 





Have you seen it yet? What did you think?

I adored this to no end! It was simply fantastic. I really like Jean Dujardin as well. I've seen him in a few other films, and find him so very enjoyable. I'm really looking forward to the Oscars this year since it received so many nominations.

It is beautifully filmed and touching. I'm so glad to see a film made today with such subtlety and glamour.
