Is The Artist the best film of the year?

The ArtistThe Artist is only opening in London in the last days of 2011 but already it’s a smash hit.

The buzz that’s carried the movie from this year’s Cannes film festival in May – where its male lead Jean Dujardin won the Best Actor prize – and almost every film festival since, has people shouting the name of the previously little-known director Michel Hazanavicius, for pulling off a movie he was told no-one would want to see.

Set in Hollywood in 1927, its silent, its in black and white and features a gloriously romantic story between Dujardin’s silent movie star and Berenice Bejo‘s stunning starlet (plus some great tap dancing!) that’s lead critics to swoon.

What more do you need to know? I’m there!
