A Woman of Paris
Marie ends up alone in Paris
A former famous variety star prevents a young ballerina from committing suicide.
He helps her recover and regain her self-confidence so she can return to the stage. Although it was not his last film, it seems likely that Chaplin made Limelight as a farewell film. It is definitely a very personal film in which he himself plays an old clown who was once acclaimed but whose work has increasingly fallen into oblivion.
English spoken, Dutch subtitles
There are no new dates planned (yet) for Limelight.
Charlie Chaplin has an oeuvre like no other: magical, poetic, hilarious, moving and irresistible. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his groundbreaking film The Kid. Reason enough to bring all his films back to the big screen, in beautifully restored versions.
