Chaplin's masterpiece is not only a brilliant and funny commentary on industrialism and technology, but also on how capitalism and materialism have made us more mechanical as a soceity.

This was my first Chaplin's movie, and I loved it. I didn't expected such a lovely performance. The fact that they don't talk in the movie really makes you appreciate the music (and by the way, it was compossed by Chaplin himself).
