"Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed." - Jewish Barber
The comedy in cinema today is cheapened, with directors leaving aside the intelligence and focusing on sex appeals and other ignorances meaningless. In this film Chaplin had first of all, a huge courage in the middle of World War II to criticize superb two of the greatest dictators this world has ever seen, Hitler and Mussolini.
For those unfamiliar, is worth watching the story of a Jewish barber in times of war and of a dictator who wanted to dominate the world, both played by Chaplin in this masterpiece that should always be remembered. A spectacular intelligent comedy, which was written and directed impeccably.
