* DutchAngle: Used in the scene where a drunk, depressed George sets fire to the negatives of his old movies. Possibly another homage to period techniques.

'''''The Artist''''' is a 2011 French film emulating the style of cinema in the [[TheRoaringTwenties 1920s]], and the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward winner for Best Picture of the year. Written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius and produced by Thomas Langmann, it stars Jean Dujardin as George Valentin, a silent movie star in 1920s Hollywood whose career goes into decline with the Great Depression and the advent of talking pictures. He falls in love with a young ingenue named Peppy Miller, played by Berenice Bejo, whose Hollywood career arc is the exact opposite of Valentin's.
