The movie simply takes us to the silent era of the Movie world in a great way of presentation. So when it comes to Silent Cinema every thing you got to express in every possible way. So its purely performance oriented depend’s on the Artists. So every one have to react or overwhelm something to express.. so it was a wonderful creative job. I thank this movie so that i came to know the significance of the classics and the way they worked it out.
- Coming to the movie “The Artist” I am impressed by the by the Hero who performed as A King of Scilent Movies.. no words to express his perfomance.. Jean Dujardin (won Oscar for 2011 Best Actor )
- Lady leading Bérénice Bejo pair of this movie also had made a good performance not less than her leading Hero. The Dance part was excellent. Every one had given their best out of so much hard work.
- The Movie deserve’s a very good platform of a love story in a subtle manner. A good thought of using the silent cinema and they succeed. Congrats to The Artist and Michel Hazanavicius the Director and Writer.
Oscars 2012: The Artist’s win is a glorious fluke.. I also Agree with this..
Here i got some interesting Triva from IMDB.
- The movie was shot in the 1.33:1 “Academy ratio,” just as in silent-film days, since director-writer Michel Hazanavicius considered it ‘perfect for actors’ because it gives them ‘a presence, a power, a strength. They occupy all the space of the screen.’
- There is not a single ‘zoom shot’ in the entire movie because Zoom technology did not exist in the movie’s time period.
- On BAFTA 2012 Red Carpet, Jean Dujardin said in an interview that the movie was shot in just 35 days.
- The role of Jack the dog was actually played by three matching Jack Russell Terriers: Uggie; Dash; and Dude, although The lead dog Uggie did the majority of scenes. All three dogs were colored before the filming began, made to look more alike.
- Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo rehearsed the climactic dance sequence for five months, practicing almost every day in the same studio that Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly used to rehearse for Singin’ in the Rain. “It was really hard,” remembers Bejo, “and even now when I look at the movie I can’t believe how fast we’re doing it. Sometimes it’s like my feet still hurt.”
