Chaplins zweiter Tonfilm - eine berühmte sozial- und gesellschaftskritische Tragikomödie über den Menschen im Räderwerk der modernen Technik. Charlie, der Tramp, erlebt am Fließband einer Fabrik, später als Testperson einer "Frühstücksmaschine" und unfreiwilliger Streikführer die Absurdität eines reglementierten Lebens, das die Menschen zu Anhängseln der Apparaturen degradiert. Auch das kleine Paradies, das er für sich und ein armes Straßenmädchen errichtet, erweist sich als trügerisch; am Ende zieht Charlie mit seiner Freundin auf der Landstraße davon. Eine Tragikomödie von bitter-ironischer Schärfe; mit einfachsten Mitteln, viel Bildwitz und Galgenhumor gestaltet, setzt der Film die vitalen Bedürfnisse des Menschen gegen die übertriebene Rationalisierung und Mechanisierung des Lebens.
