This joyous, impeccably crafted crowdpleaser about the advent of the talkies melds the tried and tested plot of A Star Is Born to the comic exuberance of Singin' In The Rain, with the result that it is almost impossible not to fall for its charms.

The Artist

8 Dec 20114 stars

Delightful celebration of the bygone age of silent cinema, starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo
