The Artist got quite a lot of Oscars if i remember correctly and so it should have.The film chronicles the rise and fall or an actor and a actress.The Artist,George,is an older silent actor who is at the peak of his career.While as Peppy is a fresh faced actress just beginning her career.Just as Peppy is establishing a name for herself in film the talkies are invented and she becomes a star.Meanwhile George has fallen on bad times and refused to do talking films.He goes bust and it’s a downwards spiral with a lot drink going on.Great film,not too long,excellent story,film score is bang on too.My download of the film was in 4:3 aspect ratio which gives an old 20’s feel to it.With the minimal audio and sounds it works to its advantage.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1
MY RATING     –     8.5
SEEN BEFORE     –     YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  THE PUNCH LINE AT THE END IS GOOD.
