The Artist (2011)

Directed by: Michel Hazanavicius
Country: France

Plot: Hollywood, 1927: As silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break.
Quick comment: Very inventive and bold story, it manages to catch the audiences in an old fashioned way. I could feel the joy from the cinema of other times. The 5 oscars were deserved, including the one for Jean Dujardin for best performance in a leading role.
Relevant Awards: Best motion picture, actor and director at Academy Awards, USA and BAFTA Awards, UK; best actor at Cannes Film Festival, France; etc.
