Wonderful Chaplin adventure!

Charlie Chaplin's name has grown synonymous with classic comedy. Throughout the early 1900s, the extraordinary silent movie comedian featured in short films ranging from 10-30 minutes. These years denoted the birth of one of the most recognisable movie characters in existence: Chaplin's Little Tramp. There is little doubt that Chaplin knew how to put bums on seats. He also knew how to move his aud... read more

Perhaps it’s because I saw this one after watching his lionized classics like City Lights, Modern Times, The Gold Rush, and The Great Dictator that I found The Kid to be more of a beautiful introductory for what was to come than a film that packs the same amount of weight and heft that the others contain. Maybe it’s also because it didn’t make me feel as joyous as I was expecting from a Chap... read more

Note: For this review, I watched the original 1921 version of The Kid (as opposed to the 1971 cut, which includes a musical score composed by Charlie Chaplin).

Silent films have always fascinated and impressed me for as long as I can remember. Modern cinema has the advantage of words and improved cinematography, effects, etc., that makes it easier and easier to draw the audience in... read more

"Legendaarisen maineensta toki ansainnut, mutta hehkutuksiin nähden pienoinen pettymys. Tylsästi sanoisin vain, että perus-Chaplinia. Ja plussaahan on aina, että merkittävässä roolissa oleva lapsinäyttelijä ei aiheuta pään hakkaamista seinään."

Review of The Kid

“Note: For this review, I watched the original 1921 version of The Kid (as opposed to the 1971 cut, which includes a musical score composed by Charlie Chaplin).

Silent films have always fascinated and impressed me for as long as I can remember. Modern cinema has the advantage of words and improved cinematography, effects, etc., that makes it easier and easier to draw the audience into the world that the director envisions. In the case of Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, it has no audible words or flashy effects. It doesn't even have music. For 68 minutes, the film does not make a single sound. And yet, it's ultimately more engaging and entertaining than the majority of films released today. It is a testament to the acting, the directing, and even the cinematography; all doing thei” read more

"09/09/2012 Chaplinia taas neroimmillaan. Pelkästään idea siitä, kuinka ällistyttävä kemia Chaplinin ja lapsinäyttelijä Jack Cooganin välillä on elokuvaa tehdessä ollut, hivelee jokaista hermoa pehmeän täydellisesti. Cooganin roolisuoritus voi hyvinkin olla paras lapsinäyttelijän tekemä ikinä. Köyhällistöä kuvataan hienosti ja huumori on kevyen täydellistä. Koskettava tarina ja ehdottoman hieno elokuva."

The Kid

“Perhaps it’s because I saw this one after watching his lionized classics like City Lights, Modern Times, The Gold Rush, and The Great Dictator that I found The Kid to be more of a beautiful introductory for what was to come than a film that packs the same amount of weight and heft that the others contain. Maybe it’s also because it didn’t make me feel as joyous as I was expecting from a Chaplin film. The Kid is brilliant, but also very dark.

At only a little over an hour, The Kid tells its story with a tremendous amount of economy and heartbreaking imagery. It’s a simple story, really, but one full of melodrama – a young woman leaves her baby on a doorstep and is promptly found by the Tramp, who tries to pawn it offer and briefly considers leaving it to die, who takes i” read more

Wrecker's Movie Diary - 2012 (204 movies items)

"Watched: 25.12.2012 - TV - Rewatch Watched: 23.8.2012 - Digibox Sujuvaa draamaa ja komediaa taitavasti yhdistelevä mykkäklassikko, joka eittämättä on Charlie Chaplinin upein luomus kaikkien niiden mahtavien komedioiden keskuudessa. Koskettava tarina yhdistetään Kulkurin törttöilyyn ja muutamiin todella luoviin oivalluksiin. Yksi silmäänpistävimmistä asioista elokuvassa on kuvaus, joka vaikuttaa paikoin todella modernilta kun huomioidaan julkaisuvuosi. "

" I don't remember what age I was when I first saw The Kid, but I do know that I was incredibly young at the time, probably before my kindergatern years. So to the best of my memory, this is the first silent film that I can recall watching. Now, in the house that I was raised in, I was exposed to alot the Three Stooges episodes. And because of this, when I saw the black & white images of Chaplin's character with his square mustache, trampy clothes & worn curled shoes, engaging in either a cane"
