Charlie Chaplin's first film, shot when there was a movie with sound for several years. And it was this film that became his favorite among all the works of the director.
"The Fires of the Big City" - the first work of Charlie Chaplin, released already in the sound era, because of what the picture was faced with extreme pressure. However, the influence in Hollywood allowed Chaplin to remain true to himself and release the film dumb. Perhaps that is why the painting "The Fires of the Big City" became his favorite work. This tape is consistently included in the ratings of the best romantic comedies, and in 1991 was included in the list of films selected by the US National Council on the Preservation of Films for Storage at the Library of Congress.
Against the background of the comedy story, Charlie Chaplin’s films are filled with deep meaning. The painting "The Fires of the Big City" is imbued with subtle philosophy and moral values.
A blind girl and her grandmother, an eccentric millionaire and his servant, a boxer and a tramp. A series of random meetings that have become nonrandom. The key scene with flowers, filmed only from the 342nd double and boxing Charlie Chaplin (even though his character will not be in prison because of a fight). And, of course, the final - it will seem ridiculous to someone, it will make someone sad — but it will not leave anyone indifferent.
