When I was going to watch this film on DVD for the first time, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to make of it but when I did see I thought it was a lovely, romantic and hilarious silent masterpiece! Modern Times takes you through a series of hilarious disasters regarding the factory worker's journey getting back involved in life after he ended up in prison. It is a very beautiful story on... read more

Modern Times is classic Charlie Chaplin slapstick comedy, and a timeless experience. The film marks one of Chaplin's most potent movies that still has bucket loads of relevance to typical contemporary audiences.

In one of his final silent movies (more or less), Chaplin plays a worker at a local factory who struggles to live in an industrial society. In a nutshell, the film essentia... read more

工場の作業をこれ程ユニークに表現した映画ってないと思います。まるで人間が機械の一部になってしまったか、機械に同化してしまったか、そんな感じがします。

Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and Charlie is sent to a mental hospital.

"28.6. Chaplinin vasemmistolaisin leffa, tästä löytää vaikka kuinka paljon aikansa vasemmistolaisen valtavirran ajattelun keskeisiä pointteja. Oikeasti pieni ihme, että tällainen leffa on edes aikoinaan tehty, eikä pelkästään mykkyytensä puolesta."

" Notes: By now, I have seen all the movies directed by Charles Chaplin and, even though I really love 'The Great Dictator', this movie remains hands down my favorite Chaplin feature. Indeed, even as a kid, I saw the damned thing many times and, already at the time, I thought it was completely marvelous. In my opinion, with this movie, Chaplin managed to find the perfect balance between the funny bits with his usual awesome slapstick, the poetry and also the social relevancy. Back then, sound ha"

"26.3. 2019 Chaplin's masterpiece "Modern Times" is a story about biggest dreams and biggest nightmares. It is also critique against modern society where ordinary people are basically just small and insignificant parts of the gigantic and faceless system. The film is extremely impressive on metaphorical level: In the beginning of the film Chaplin compares herd of sheep with factory workers. The film is mix between silent film and sound film, which is an intentional choice: the powerful character"
