The Kid

Charlie Chaplin Stati Uniti, 1921

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Il monello

Chaplin's Little Tramp character discovers an abandoned baby and raises him as his own, while his mother who abandoned becomes a major performing star and takes up charity work for underprivileged children in hopes of reuniting him. A beguiling and emotional charmer, Chaplin tickles the funny bone and pulls the heart strings with equal aplomb.
