Just two days before the Oscars, co-star Berenice Bejo and director Michel Hazanavicius took top honours at the Cesar awards.

Best actor honours went to Omar Sy, star of the blockbuster feel-good movie Intouchables (Untouchable).

He notably beat The Artist star Jean Dujardin who won the category at Cannes, the Golden Globes and the Baftas - and is among the best-actor nominees at the Oscars.

The Artist tells of the ups and downs faced by a Hollywood silent film star at the advent of talkie movies.
