About The Artist:
Hollywood 1927. As silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he meets Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break. This film narrates the story of their overlapping destinies, or how fame, pride and money can be obstacles to their love story.
A French romantic drama starring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, this film has been directed by Michel Hazanavicius of the highly successful OSS 117 comedies fame. This remarkable film will hit the theatres on 24 February 2012 for its all-India premiere.
"The film is truly a celebration of French cinema but tells a universal story. We’re so happy to take this film closer to its origin via our association with the French Embassy in New Delhi. We’re hoping for the film to do brilliantly at the Oscars and are hoping to spread the story of George, Peppy and Uggie far and wide", says Rajiv Sangri, MD of Top Entertainment, the official distributors of the film in India.
