I've read a lot of negative reviews of this film and i would say that it depends on why you are watching it as to what you get from it. if you are watching because of its awards and publicity i think you may well be disappointed. if though you are watching to see a modern silent movie, accepting that it will be different and limited due to lack of dialogue and aware that there is a certain nostalgia aimed at by the makers then like me you will probably enjoy it
Btter silent movie out there

Didn’t really Like this movie, maybe I have not arty enough to watch it, Found it slow moving, I think better off watching a silent movie of the time like Sunrise , gold rush or the best one I think nosferatu. Only one of handful of movies I have turned off half way through it.
Lovely, sweet and perfectly imagined

Be prepared for an unusual experience - makes you feel you're really watching a film from the 20's-30's, but with funny, sad sweet moments, great music and touches of modern humor. The two leads are both amazing but I must say Peppy Miller is an absolute gem.
Silent but deadly

This film earned its oscars. There may be no dialogue but it is gripping and entertaining. All actors including the dog are excellent. Pacing is great and the tension is palpable. Its a very accessible film. Great score to accompany the scenes.
A 'nice' film

I thoroughly enjoyed the film. But forgot all about it the next day. In two weeks time if you ask if I"ve seen it I won't remember. It was entertaining and well acted. I hated the dog! But all in all I don't regret watching it.
