Story about our time
7 January 2012 | by (Düssledork) – See all my reviews

Image of crisis. Clear, precise, strong. Last part of a character ladder. And charm of an old movie. This are seeds. The result is a pledge. For small ingredients of normality. Behind masks and globalization, without ordinary fears and cages. A movie impressive for its simplicity. As white flag of hope. Innocent hero of different situations, free and pray for industrial system, piece of huge machine who marks modernization, symbol of a world too gray to be more that a silhouette, anonymous worker and toy of others facts, it is same comedy with same Charlot. But, in same time, it is a manifesto against a fake society. And subject of meditation about monsters who must make life better. A film who says profound things in ironic way. In children way. A letter for our day. Testify or map. For survive in strange times.
