Things go badly for a small film crew shooting a low budget zombie movie when they are attacked by real zombies.
Everything in Djibi's life revolves around his beloved seven-year-old daughter Sofia. This devoted single Father never misses their cherished rite of bedtime stories. Every night as Sofia falls asleep, her father takes her into "Storyland", a fantasy film studio where their extraordinary fairy-tale adventures come to life starring Djibi in the lead role as the heroic Prince Charming. Five years later and nearly an adolescent, Sofia starts to grow out of her father's stories and instead makes up tales of her own with Djibi no longer the heroic lead.
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.
