'The Artist' Synopsis

Hollywood 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), it seems the sky's the limit - major movie stardom awaits. THE ARTIST tells the story of their interlinked destinies.

    @thedude-abides -- Just finished this one, and I agree; it's overrated. I'm indifferent about the movie as a whole, but technically, it was good, and that's all that matters, to me. 2011 and 2012 are baffling years for movies, from the hype aspect. It's like, every other movie is overrated. This, "The Dark Knight Rises", "The Avengers", "Rise of The Planet of The Apes", "Warrior", and "The Help", among others. What gives?

    @dan1 Right? I was planning on writing a review for this one after I saw it. It eventually fell through, but the tag line read, "A Film so Overrated, Words Simply Can't Describe."

    I'm not sure if you've ever seen Singin' in the Rain or A Star is Born, but it's a complete carbon copy of both of those films, except nowhere near as good.

    it's like this.... if your from another country,gay,or kiss men in public, or in a movie that the majority doesn't care about or haven't seen,and can't even speak english hardly (the kings speach,the artist) . .... you might win all the oscars away from the ones that had some of the best movies put out in years like pitt and clooney and they were great and made real "worth being a part of a croud pleaser movies". i mean they were actually terrific and here come this silent piece or crap that will probaly be forgotten instead of cult followers, to steal the oscar with no apoligies .
    what a freaking joke. the academy ..a freaking joke!! Dude from the artist is like "i love this country,yeah, you love coming over here and stealing an award you didn't even deserve. you ffYuck!
