The Artist

I must must MUST see this beautifully romantic, authentic and of course French film very soon! The Artist tells the story of a famous silent movie star, George Valentin, in late 1920's Hollywood, who meets an aspiring actress called Peppy Miller. Soon a blossoming romance begins after she is given a small role in his next film. The pair create great success together as a double act, alas, new technology and the invention of 'Talkies' -film with sound begin to take off, leaving Valentin no longer the sought after icon he once was, and is soon fired. Meanwhile, Peppy becomes a star in her own right in the new type of film, causing a rift in their affair.... 

Beautiful, charismatic, charming, romantic, tense, old fashioned, black and white and French...what more could a girl ask for!?
