Orchestra Haydn di Bolzano e Trento conducted by Timothy Brock - Auditorium
Program Info: Charles Chaplin - Modern Times
Charlie Chaplin is in glorious form in this legendary satire of the mechanized world. (…) The pantomime is triumphant, but Chaplin also draws a lively relationship between the Tramp and a street gamine. She’s played by Paulette Goddard, then Chaplin’s wife and probably his best leading lady (here and in The Great Dictator). The film’s theme gave the increasingly ambitious writer-director a chance to speak out about social issues, as well as indulging in the bittersweet quality of pathos that critics were already calling ‘Chaplinesque.’ In 1936, Chaplin was still holding out against spoken dialogue in films, but he did use a synchronized soundtrack of sound effects and his own music, a score that includes one of his most famous melodies.
