The Artist's' five Oscars arouse spirited reaction in France

| No Comments

France woke up Monday with elation for the impressive Oscar success of "The Artist," the French production that was filmed in Los Angeles, according to the L.A. Times.

The Times said Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France called the film's five-Oscar victory "a testament to the vitality of our cinema," in a statement.

Headlines at newstands at Gare Montparnasse and beyond loudly saluted the near-silent film's achievement as a "renewal of French cinema," according to the Times.

The Times also said, 'There seemed no end to the images of Jean Dujardin's winning smile, and minor variations on the catchy phrase used on television as well as in print: "How a Frenchy seduced Hollywood."'
