The Artist is the homage of a French moviemaker to American silent cinema of the twenties. And so this is a silent movie, in black and white, coming out on the 23rd of November 2011 in your theatres.
Moviemaker Michel Hazanavicius began writing humoristic sketches. Then he made TV commercials. Deeply passionate about American cinema, he made a movie called Le Grand Détournement (The Great Diversion) made out of some Hollywood cult movies. He mixed scenes and redubbed them to create a totally new absurd and really funny movie, following the example of Woody Allen’s What’s Up, Tiger Lily?
Now, he comes back with a more serious and profound homage to the cinema he – we? – loves.
Go see it, and be proud.
See? French people learned your lessons…
