Visionary, witty satire in which Chaplin plays the character of Hynkel, a caricature of Adolf Hitler. The first ‘talkie’ in Chaplin’s filmography.

A Jewish barber returns home after two decades within hospital walls to find his old shop not only dilapidated but marked with hateful graffiti. The source of this hatred is the regime of a tyrannical dictator who is persecuting the barber along with the rest of the Jewish community.

In one of his most ingenious strokes of artistry ever, Charlie Chaplin subverted the fears of the time with a visionary and undeniably moving satire of fascism and discrimination.
