Our last homage in our freedom film festival is The Great Dictator. This parody makes light of the totalitarian regimes of 20th century. Dictator Adenoid Hynkel tries to expand his empire while a poor Jewish barber tries to avoid persecution within Hynkel's regime. Many parallels with Nazi Third Reich can be found in this comedy written and directed by Charlie Chaplin. He stars as both main characters.
In English with English subtitles. 125 minutes.
