Charlie Chaplin – The Kid
We live where once Charlie Chaplin lived in London – in a place called Lambeth.
We walk the same streets as he did and see the same views… and as we do we can almost feel the spirit which has influenced Charlie Chaplin’s work.
His difficult and tragic childhood made him seek escape in an imaginary world.
In his film “The Kid” Chaplin masterfully conveys an array of emotions and his own longing for a father, all in black and white and in a silent format. Charlie Chaplin acts the role of the father but truly the kid represents his own little self.
“The Kid” is one of the finest examples of screen language based entirely on silent acting.
Charlie Chaplin is an icon!!
