Charles Chaplin / US, 1931 / 87 min.

“Comedy is tragedy in close-up” is one of Charles Chaplin’s well-known sayings. In City Lights, he shows his tramp character seemingly helplessly stumbling through the world. He falls in love with a blind flower seller, drags his skinny body through a boxing match and floats supremely between sentimentality and slapstick.
