Such a project may seem pretentious, however, the charm of the film lies in its honesty, its purity and transmitting the mere pleasure of the director to honor the life of a silent film artist... [Full review in Spanish]

The nightmare is the best scene in The Artist because it subverts the tenets of silent film while articulating George's genuine terror....The final stretches [though] are where The Artist loses command of its tone.

The Artist makes a strong argument for film as an escape from the modern escapist fantasies. It doesn't mean anything - that's what some critics are crying now - but since when did we decide that movies always have to have meaning?

Dujardin is as charismatic a lead as Gene Kelly ever was, and Bejo is the perfect, irresistible foil for ageing megastar George Valentin. In support, John Goodman is perfectly cast.

The Artist is a bore, just like the hammy has-been around which it revolves.

Jean Dujardin is ready for a game between eras: his chatty smile and way of moving connect with the great adventurous gallant of silent American cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]

The director is skillful, has what it takes to activate the mechanisms of feeling in any cinephile's heart and exploits it well. [Full review in Spanish]

Sadly, Hazanavicius is so unskilled, so steeped in the empty signposting of parody and stereotype, that he's actually signaling to us throughout The Artist that we're watching a quaint old art form Lindy Hopping its way to the bone yard.

The Artist made me remember why I love movies.

The Artist is simply a pleasure to watch, if only for just two hours in time.

It's inarguable that you'll leave The Artist with a spring in your step and a grin on your face.

The background music is stunningly evocative. And there's a certain grace and charm with which the movie has been made.
