A film that will make you smile ear to ear, Michel Hazanavicius' novelty film plays with the old school style of silent film to capture a time in the history of Hollywood where silent film was transitioning out of favor because of the innovation of the talkies. It's storyline is about the fall of an older star as he refuses to accept the changes in his industry and the rise of a younger one who helps him in the end get back on his feet. While the story's premise isn't exactly original, the resurrection of silent film to capture it is. With this in mind, it couldn't have been successful without its production design, costumes, direction and performances from its stellar cast of French main-stays Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo. Most importantly, though, above all is the gorgeous musical score by Ludovic Bource which fills the emotional void left from the film's lack of dialogue. Overall, this film is an absolute crowd-pleaser that will leave you charmed to tears.
