English Synopsis

George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a Hollywood actor in silent films who fails to make the transition into the era of sound. He meets a young would-be actress, Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), at a film premiere and from then on, their respective careers follow opposite trajectories: while his falls into decline, hers reaches greater and greater heights. When he hits rock bottom and contemplates suicide, she rushes to his rescue and eventually helps him find his way into sound films through tap dancing.
