Hey George I I did I watch this movie it in amazement it was is so riveting and I think you're sitting down with visual development and Japanese big -- made me love it even more there was so fun and and and delightful and although they admit to being blown away by all the Oscar buzz. They're taking it very much in stride. It's the silent film making serious war. -- Taking hold a sag and three Golden Globe awards the artist heads -- the Oscars with ten nominations.

To Denny's Visio both very successful actors in France and -- becoming the talk of first of all a huge congratulations. For. All that's been going -- at a huge huge. You can what are yours are popular combination ticket grades unbelievable it's amazing there are few things you can say about John -- program I'm an obvious. I'm coming to. -- -- -- French man shot to stardom and not shy about sharing his frustration with the English -- But as he gets more comfortable doing English interviews -- one thing is for sure he and his costar have mastered silence. I think that the fact there's no dialogue and it's and that's why didn't even if it's beautiful it's about love it's back Hollywood and I think you know -- And everybody -- that kind of story. Was there any party at the beginning that was a little hesitant about taking the role. No matter you never -- because because because I admired and shelves so much I think he's very Smart. And we're talking about Michelle also this it's you that it very well -- on -- these cius is the film's acclaimed writer producer and director. He -- also been -- husband when he sent to yet it will King Kong and a start writing I was very excited. What was the hardest part about playing time.

And with that. I got a lesson from a -- okay. Change. Okay so it is fun and remember I have danced before but it's not as easy as these mega talents make it look. And -- -- not all that's your skeletal at and I -- just smiled and -- Tinseltown maybe talking about big Joseph Andruw Jones then there is another character in this film.

You know about race and -- you all told me that they they didn't act any differently than they would have been a regular movie with sounded both said lines to each other sometimes in English sometimes in French. Winds of course that the audience wouldn't -- -- period. But it's amazing how much your body language and facial expression can communicate but I think -- -- you probably couldn't do an Oscar acceptance speech. In silence I I hope they do in pretty good shuffle step their camp. Well I don't like to -- George -- -- Go ahead say it might actually -- women they really look so good. I couldn't even keep my balance on one like -- he's like rocketed out there so -- really pretty good things left in Atlanta.
