This Oscar-acclaimed film has all the attributes of a classic, the romance, fame and glamour tied together to create a masterpiece of rarely seen quality. The story line flows wonderfully, encapsulating the highs and lows of a professional actor’s short-lived time in the spotlight.
The story line re-tells the turmoil of transition between silent films and their counter parts of today. The Artist tells the story of George Valentin, a silent film actor who has achieved fame and glory many times. The storyline begins to take shape when he meets peppy miller, a young woman with an aptitude for acting. As the film progresses we see their relationship develop, unfortunately the time of the silent film is coming to an end. This relationship turns into betrayal as she stars in a leading role in a “talkie”. Valentine becomes suicidal, leading to the climax of the film that in no uncertain terms really is worthy of all the Oscars it collected.
