Do not be afraid that its a silent film. It is amazing and better be nominated for an Oscar. The leads are incredible. It's a love letter to film history. There's an adorable dog that just screams Asta. There's a dance number that will make you think of Gene Kelly in "Singin' in the Rain" or Fred And Ginger. Do you need any more reasons?
I saw it at Talk Cinema today after phla sent me a link to something mentioning it. Only one person in the whole theater didn't like it. That never happens.
