(OK) Besides the great imagination conceptualization of labour force mechanized in scale, before Chaplin's "Modern times", is not too much. The clochard end has some charm

A great classic

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since this movie seemed to have a strong reputation (it is included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list among other things), I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I had heard of René Clair before but it was the first movie I saw directed by this guy. Well, I have to admit that I was so impressed by the ... read more

"Original Title: 'À nous la liberté' Directed by: René Clair Plot: Seeking better life, two convicts escape from prison. Note: I have noticed that this movie has been heralded as a great satirical comedy but, in my opinion, it is also a fascinating political manifesto displaying so many Anarchist concepts and ideas. Indeed, it was against so many things such as Capitalism, working, productivity, money, wealth,… pretty much following the Anarchist dogma which was so neat. What was even mor"

Film Diary 2022 (114 movies items)

" In life liberty is all that counts, but man invented the prison cell. Codes and laws, do's and don'ts. Work, offices and houses as well. Don't you agree...What life can be? My old friend, life is great when you're free to be yourself. So come on, let's emancipate, fresh air is good for the health. A decent movie advocating love and freedom over the ills of capitalism and modernism, just a bit too whimsical for me. "

"25.1 Clair/Ranska Clairin varhaisen äänielokuvan alku on uskomaton, mukaansatempaava, fantastinen. Sellitoverit yrittävät vankilapakoa, mutta vain toinen kaveruksista pääsee läpi. Hän nousee äänilevytehtaan pampuksi, samalla kun toinen jatkaa lusimiskierrettään. Lopulta kaverikin vapautuu ja päätyy entisen sellitoverinsa liukuhihnalle sekoilemaan Chaplinille vaikutteita antaneella tavalla. Herkässä elokuvassa asetetaan vastakkain aito, onnellinen ihminen luonnonlapsimaisessa vap"

"2.6. Miekkonen karkaa vankilasta ja päätyy johtamaan massiivista levy-yhtiötä. Menneisyys on paljastua entisen sellitoverin ilmaannuttua kuvioihin. Kaikki ratkeaa poikamaisella leikkimielisellä laululla. Omaisuutta tärkeämpää on vapaus. Elokuvana teos on pelkkää hömppää - jokseenkin ihan viihdyttävää sellaista."
