In the strictest of terms, Modern Times is a satirical masterpiece of industrialization and the exploitation of labor force; in subjective terms, Modern Times is a celebration of life in irreversible, harsh times. There's one term that made Chaplin's scope incomparable and influential: innocence. A character walking through the confines of the world and its different faces (neoralist streets in The Kid , a snowy mountain and local pubs in The Gold Rush , a city that never sleeps in City Lights , the Second World War in The Great Dictator ...) with complete naiveté was a wonderful concept worth of worldwide nostalgia. Tati is very thankful. 99/100
