This 1931 silent comedy drama from Charles Chaplin sees The Tramp fall in love with a beautiful, blind flower girl, whose family is in financial trouble. When he learns that an operation may restore the girl's sight, he sets off to earn the money she needs to have surgery. The Tramp's friendship with a wealthy man allows him to be the girl's benefactor and suitor - but will she love him even when she discovers that he is not a wealthy duke, but a tramp?

 The light fantastic

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (703)

One of the finest silent comedies from Charlie Chaplin is simplicity itself: a tramp falls in love with a blind girl and tries to raise money for her to have an operation that will restore her sight. Fortunately, he falls in with a booze-addled (and frequently forgetful) millionaire. With a frankly meandering plot that essentially just stitches together different skits, and the occasional lapse into sentimentality, this still gets by thanks to the delightful nature of the gags and the seemingly effortless staging. The ending is exquisite.

 Beautiful film,by a genius.

Completely my favourite film of all time.the perfect comic timing,the brilliant story.chaplin's second last silent movie is just superb in every way.and the blu-ray transfer is amazing.no grain,no fuzziness,just a crisp sharp picture.lets hppe all his films (and laurel &hardys) get the blu-ray treatment.

One of the greatest movies of all time with with out doubt the greatest and saddess ending of all time, just telling people about the ending makes me well up with tears. Beautiful, and a beautiful transfer which this true classic deserves. Just buy this disc.
