Attacked as tasteless and cynical on its release, this is a typically dark comedy from Billy Wilder, featuring great roles for women. The prim head of a congressional committee is trying to find out how much black marketeering is going on in the ruins of post-Second World War Berlin, and a German aristocrat is reduced to working as a nightclub singer. Cynical? Yes, but witty and bitingly satirical too.
Chaplin's first 'talkie' was also the first major anti-fascist film of its era portrayed through slapstick and satire, with a touching message.
