  1. Sigh says:

    I love the scenes on the stairs. Framed, like a picture.

  2. Jeffra Walters says:

    I have been curiously waiting for this film to be available. I have seen the clips during the Academy Awards and was enthralled. There are so many references to real silent film stars like Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy, W.C. Fields, etc. Growing up, my parents introduced me to silent movies and filled me in on the back stories of the stars that they loved. In our present time where everything is fast, loud, and filled with special effects, this film illustrates the value in paying close attention to nuance in facial features and body language.

    How can I purchase a copy of The Artist with French dialogue?

  4. Pamela says:

    Brilliant movie making. Period. And I am an avid film watcher.I was amazed at how great a silent film could be. Shocked actually.

  5. Ron Coley says:

    Completely brilliant. I almost became overwhelmed while watching it by the realization that I was seeing one of the greatest cinematic achievements ever.

  6. Paula says:

    Surely Charlie Chaplin is looking down, and smiling with approval. “The Artist” is truly a work of art!

  7. Meg says:

    Incredible film making: back to the basics. Brilliant and so PURE. The only movie I’ve gone to see 4 times, and would easily go a dozen more–trying to dig up some 2nd run theaters before it’s too late. Movie stars, to me, are like cardboard posters… not much to them. But Jean Dujardin… he’s in a class by himself. Now THAT is a MAN. Melt doorknobs indeed!! lol. I want MORE of him. George who? Brad who? And look who won Best Actor. Utterly refreshing.

  8. Charlotte Brindley says:

    One of the best movies I have ever seen in my entire life.

  9. Kevin Hearn says:

    Obvious choice for best picture. I’m a big oscars fan; saw every movie. To me by far the best put together production and amazingly original for the concept that has been done before, 70 years ago. Great acting, great directing, great movie. 10/10
