Der große Diktator by Charlie Chaplin( Visual )

31 editions published between 1100 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heil oder Unheil - Charles Chaplin stellt sich jeder Herausforderung! Das Resultat ist dieser gefeierte Klassiker, der im Jahr 2000 vom American Film Institut in die Liste der 100 besten amerikanischen Komödien aufgenommen wurde. - Die USA waren noch nicht in den Zweiten Weltkrieg eingetreten, als Chaplin sich bereits mit seiner Comedy-Mutation auf den "Führer" einschoss: In einer Doppelrolle spielt er sowohl den an Hitler angelehnten Adenoid Hynkel als auch einen jüdischen Friseur, der dem irren Tyrannen wie ein Zwilling gleicht. Mit Wortspielen, optischen Gags und Slapstick nimmt Chaplin den Faschismus aufs Korn, stellt aber seinen Attacken auch ergreifende Szenen im von Sturmtruppen terrorisierten Ghetto gegenüber. Zu den unvergesslichen Momenten zählen Hynkels machttrunkener Tanz mit dem Globus, der Kopfüber-Flug sowie Hynkel und Jack Oakie als Mussolini-Alter-Ego, die beide wie wahnsinng ihre Friseurstühle höher kurbeln. "Der grosse Diktator" vereint grossartige Komik mit der Leidenschaft eines hervorragenden Filmemachers. (Quelle: Vorlage)
