My rating: 9/10
Will I watch it again? Yes.
Want to know how behind I am in writing up movies I've seen? I saw this in the theater a year ago. Great flick. I was floored. Not only is this a fun movie that's able to pull off being a silent film but it also looks and feels (though not always) like it was made 90 years ago. It's funny and touching. I applaud everyone involved for pulling this off. Did it deserve Best Picture last year? I can't say with certainty but I was very pleased it won. I laughed and I cried. The scene where Peppy (Bejo) puts on Valentin's (Dujardin) coat was brilliant. The two leads were magnificent. What a delightful picture. What a lot of short sentences.
