The Kid

Charlie Chaplin Stati Uniti, 1921

msmichel's rating of the film Il monello

Chaplin's first feature length film is still a delight over 90 years later !!!! The mix of the comedic and the human is oft touching beyond words. Coogan may well give the best childhood performance ever in a heartbreaking but often funny turn. Chaplin of course is a delight taking the lovable tramp from years of short films and giving him even more depth and everyman humanity. Essential cinema.
