The film The Artist has three strikes against it. It is a black and white (1), silent film (2) loosely based on the classic film A Star is Born (3). When the local multiplex is teeming with shoot ’em up, blow ‘em up movies, what were the producers thinking ?
That they had a hit on their hands! The Artist won the 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Picture, Comedy/Musical .
I loved this film and predict that it will (re)popularize cloche hats and tap dancing. OK, maybe not the hats (actually rather unflattering), but tap dancing for sure!
Go see this charming film!
