Possibly one of the most joyously enjoyable films to screen in the Cannes competition – especially for lovers of classic Hollywood cinema – THE ARTIST is a real pleasure… Shot in beautiful black-and-white, silent (apart from a few brief moments of sound) and propelled elegantly forward by delightful performances from Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo it is the most unlikely of feel-good movies. George Valentin (Dujardin) is at the height of his powers in 1927 when he meets the vivacious and warm-hearted Peppy Miller (Bejo), who is trying to break into the movies through work as an extra.
