Product Description

Winner of 5 Academy Awards® including: Best Picture, Best Actor (Jean Dujardin), Best Director, Best Original Musical Score, and Best Costume Design.

The Artist is a love letter and homage to classic black-and-white silent films. The film is enormously likable and is anchored by a charming performance from Jean Dujardin, as silent movie star George Valentin. In late-1920s Hollywood, as Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he makes an intense connection with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break. As one career declines, another flourishes, and by channeling elements of A Star Is Born and Singing in the Rain, The Artist tells the engaging story with humor, melodrama, romance, and--most importantly--silence. As wonderful as the performances by Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo (Miller) are, the real star of The Artist is cinematographer Guillaume Schiffman. Visually, the film is stunning. Crisp and beautifully contrasted, each frame is so wonderfully constructed that this sweet and unique little movie is transformed from entertaining fluff to a profound cinematic achievement. --Kira Canny

From the Studio

Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is one of Hollywood's reigning silent screen idols, instantly recognizable with his slim moustache and signature white tie and tails. Starring in exotic tales of intrigue and derring-do, the actor has turned out hit after hit for Kinograph, the studio run by cigar-chomping mogul Al Zimmer (John Goodman). His success has brought him an elegant mansion and an equally elegant wife, Doris (Penelope Ann Miller). Chauffeured to the studio each day by his devoted driver Clifton (James Cromwell), George is greeted by his own smiling image, emblazoned on the posters prominently placed throughout the Kinograph lot. As he happily mugs for rapturous fans and reporters at his latest film premiere, George is a man indistinguishable from his persona-- and a star secure in his future.

For young dancer Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), the future will be what she makes of it. Vivacious and good-humored, with an incandescent smile and a flapper's ease of movement, Peppy first crosses George's path at his film premiere and then as an extra on his latest film at Kinograph. As they film a brief dance sequence, the leading man and the newcomer fall into a natural rhythm, the machinery of moviemaking fading into the background. But the day must finally end, sending the matinee idol and the eager hopeful back to their respective places on the Hollywood ladder.

And Hollywood itself will soon fall under sway of a captivating new starlet: talking pictures. George wants no part of the new technology, scorning the talkie as a vulgar fad destined for the dustbin. By 1929, Kinograph is preparing to cease all silent film production and George faces a choice: embrace sound, like the rising young star Peppy Miller; or risk a slide into obscurity...


Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) est une vedette du cinéma muet à qui tout sourit. L'arrivée des films parlants va le faire sombrer dans l'oubli. Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), jeune figurante, va elle, être propulsée au firmament des stars. Ce film raconte l'histoire de leurs destins croisés, ou comment la célébrité, l'orgueil et l'argent peuvent être autant d'obstacles à leur histoire d'amour..

This clever take on the silent era is a valentine (note the titular character's name) to Old Hollywood and especially to lovers of classic movies. Unknown French director Michel Hazanavicius, who also wrote the screenplay, wanted to take on the challange of making a silent film, complete with black & white photography & title cards, in the 21st century. To say that he succeeded (whether you like the film or not) cannot be denied.

The movie opens in 1927 Hollywood. Silent superstar George Valentin (a combination of Douglas Fairbanks Sr & John Gilbert & played by French actor Jean Dujardin) is about to be caught up in the transition to sound. While he is dealing with this crisis, young extra Peppy Miller (a cross between the young Joan Crawford, Clara Bow, & Gloria Swanson & winningly played by Berenice Bejo who just happens to be the director's wife) makes the transition to sound and is on her way up. The parallel to A STAR IS BORN is obvious along with several other references to classic films such as CITIZEN KANE (the breakfast scene), SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (the sound test), & THE THIN MAN (the dog). For the end sequence, pick the Astaire-Rogers musical of your choice.

Along with the French performers, two American character actors are given prominent roles in the proceedings. John Goodman plays the classic Hollywood studio head complete with fat cigar while James Cromwell is George's loyal chauffeur (a reference to SUNSET BOULEVARD). Both adapt themselves well to the silent medium. While there are several references to other classic Hollywood films, THE ARTIST is more than just a simple homage.

A lot of people did not like this movie because they weren't sure about what they were going in for. Now that this highly critically acclaimed movie has won Oscars, folks like me have given it another chance. This film in of itself is a period peice and a look at the silent film era of entertainment, done in the style of an (almost completely) silent film. If people knew it was a silent film prior to seeing it, I think they would be prepared and enjoy it like I did.
Watching and liking a movie is all about context. If you know you are about to see a comic book movie, your expectations on realism versus fantasy will be attuned to what you are about to see, and you will appreciate it for what it is. This is a fantastic movie about the powerful role of the actor, and the body language they use to convey emotions and tell a story without sound effects, only subtitles; as was the way before the 'talkies' came out. The story is of a proud silent screen actor who stubbornly refuses to get on board with the new sound added movies, and struggles with this while his biggest fans and friends do whatever they can to keep him relevant. This is a crossroads piece. Like the locomotive and motor car replacing the horse, or video killing the radio star...

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 10 2015
Format: DVD
This is a good movie, but it typically one that is overrated because it shows some kind of class, intellect and refinement to proclaim itself as genius. The production starts with 3 strikes against it. First, at times, it is a movie within a movie. Second, it is in black and white, and third, it is mostly all silent. With all the rave, I was willing to attempt an open mind viewing (zombie films are sometimes in black and white too).

These techniques were done to to give us the flavor of the films of the era. Even though those restored masters are available, who among the 5 star rave reviewers watch them? You could list them on one hand, or maybe one finger. In the silent era, the jokes were visual. The sound track created the mood, more so than it does today, and actors had to make dramatic movements to create emotions. They used their face...a term called "mugging" in the film. This was brilliantly brought out in the film, although we already knew that.

The film uses symbolism, such as when our star George Valentin's (Jean Dujardin)career is sinking, it shows him in a film sinking in quicksand. Good yes. Genius? Hardly. The script reminded me of "A Star is Born" (pick one) where a star launches the career of a new star only to see his fade. George is "The Artist" who believes talkies are not art. Besides the studio no longer wants George. They want fresh faces such as rising star Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo).

I liked the idea of doing the silent movie film to show us the transition from silent to talkies, I just didn't like the predictable script. Plot is important.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. You should be able to read lips after this film.

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 19 2013
Format: Blu-ray
We start out with a one dog act that contains a man in a mask George (Jean Dujardin). George runs into Peppy (Miller not Pepé Le Pew) he helps get her started in the movies. Then talkies come about and George becomes a dunsel (Spock explains the term is used by midshipmen at Starfleet Academy to describe a part serving no useful purpose.) George thinks talkies is a joke. You can see where this is leading. It took a little time to recognize Penelope Ann Miller as George's distraught wife Doris.

They may have been better off making a documentary than trying to recapture an era that had a different audience. I think I will hold out for colour. Be sure to watch the commentaries; even though they seem like one big commercial at the same time it give you insight at to what they tried to accomplish.

The film its self is designed for as a tribute to early film. The actors did well and the sets (especially the Bradbury Building in Los Angeles) were nice. The sixteen cylinder Cadillac would look good in my driveway. Yet the movie was just hard to watch because on every level it was so so so contrived.
