  • Silenceeeeee......!!

    The Artist rating: 9 out of 10(Subhashis Biswas wrote on 04 Mar 2012)

    The Artist...in true sense..a path-breaking movie..in true sense..a display of expression, amidst all the blabbering that is happening in today's world. A feeling that sinks in the mind that while we talk so much with all our egoistic pride..we forget the expressions and emotions.

    The transition from silent movies to talkies created a wave around the world in film industry. Expressionists became expressionless, the vocalists found new ground under the feet. Voice took over silence. Old order changeth yielding place to new.
    It is an extremely difficult job to portray something without dialogue. It is even more difficult job to do so in 21st century, when literally the whole world is screaming with special effects, scary movie sounds, articulate dialogues.

    The Artist showed us, passion and emotion does not need a sound. Caring love affection does not need a sound. Expression of Joy does not need a sound. All this world needs a little bit of heart, actually a lot of heart. Rest will be taken care of automatically.
    Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo gave their lifetime performances. Impersonating something that is 90 odd years old, and making 21st century audience believe that this is 1932..is truely herculean task which both of them managed with ease.The power and existence of sound, and lack of it..has been masterfully portrayed by the director. We hear so many sounds everyday that we sometime forget the value of the sound. Imagine a silent world..and you will feel the scariness.

    Gracias Jean Dujardin, Gracias Berenice Bejo. Appeal to all my friends, spare some time..go watch it, you will feel privileged.
