The Reviews for Limelight (1952) 1080p


The Limelight is a Cruel LoverReviewed bywes-connorsVote: 8/10

Charlie Chaplin moves into the 1950s with an unusual drama about an alcoholic old timer (Chaplin as Calvero) and suicidal young ballerina (Claire Bloom as Terry). The comedian "Calvero" is drunk as the film opens, and obviously in the twilight of his career. He rescues Ms. Bloom from a suicide attempt and helps her to get back on her feet (so to speak).

The film seems almost like nothing, but becomes quite substantial. It's a very thoughtful film -- obviously, Chaplin in his 60s has lost none of his film-making skills: the difference is that you come to Chaplin on His terms. No longer interested (capable?) of producing massive audience "hits", Chaplin produces an indulgent, sentimental "Limelight". It's an excellent work, but very hard to digest.

Some impressions: Comedy is ballet. Life is ballet. Young needs old. Old needs young. Comics need a drug. Perhaps the film needs a single focus? I found the sequences where Chaplin is told by the "suits" he's washed-up to be most memorable; along with the small scene where a comic goes in for Chaplin's job because he's heard the old clown is awful. The stuff with Buster Keaton is very nice, too, and makes you wish the would have done a full film together. I believe Keaton's role makes the film deliberately less autobiographical than many would believe, but you can never be sure?

Chaplin is interesting to watch always; when he seems to be doing nothing, he's not.

One of the best movies by ChaplinReviewed byJosé Luis Rivera Mendoza (jluis1984)Vote: 7/10

Charlie Chaplin was without a doubt one of the most important pioneers of film-making, and through his life he saw the development of the cinema and its progress. "Limelight" is probably not as well known as most of his silent feature, but it is a very important film to understand the vivacious mind of this genius. It is a very personal film that showcases Chaplin's feelings about his own brand of comedy and how it slowly lost the public's attention as he grew older.

"Limelight" is the story of an old comedian named Calvero (Chaplin), who one morning discovers that his young neighbor Thereza (Claire Bloom) attempted to commit suicide. He decides to take care of her and discovers that she is a dancer; knowing that both share a passion for performing he begins to cheer her up and prepares her to become a great dancer while at the same time he remembers his past glories.

When one watches "Limelight" is impossible not to see the many autobiographical aspects of the plot, as in many ways, Calvero represents how Chaplin feels at the modernization of comedy on stage. Like Chaplin, Calvero also played the character of an optimist tramp who always saw the good side of life, and like Chaplin, Calvero faced many times the urge to modernize his act. It's kind of frightening to think about how much of Calvero's story could be based on Chaplin's real experiences as it is a sharp criticism (for its time) to the way performers are treated by both their managers and their public.

As the last of his "talkies" made in America, "Limelight" is done with all the power Chaplin still had (although the film would be banned as Chaplin lost his power due to his political opinions) and it shows. The stage performances of the characters are sublime and in Calvero's memories Chaplin resurrects a way of comedy apparently dead by the early 50s and makes it fresh. The Keaton/Chaplin duo is a classic moment captured on film. However, "Limelight" is not a comedy in the strict sense of the word. Those expecting a laugh-riot like "Modern Times" or "The Great Dictator" will be disappointed, this is a very personal melodrama where Chaplin his emotions about his career.

The acting is very good, Chaplin may be more remembered for his parts in silent films, but he delivers his lines with ease and ability. His physical comedy is superb and his overall performance is memorable (mainly because it feels as if he was playing himself). Claire Bloom is at times a bit too melodramatic for the movie's sake, but for the most part is very effective and makes a good counterpart to Chaplin's Calvero. Among the supporting cast Nigel Bruce as always chews the scenery and Buster Keaton is simply fabulous in his small yet classic role.

Probably "Limelight"'s main problem is its excess of melodrama, and its at times, excessively preachy attitude. The fact that is not a comedy may turn off people not used to Chaplin's more serious side, as while the movie has its fair share of laughs, it is obvious that Chaplin wanted to be recognized as more than a mere clown. The movie's slow pace and rhythm also put it closer to the melodrama of the 40s than to the image we are all used to see when we think of Chaplin.

Despite all this, "Limelight" stands as a testament of Chaplin's enormous talent, and while not very well-known, it is one of the finest films he ever did. Fans of his work will definitely enjoy this film and fans of Keaton will appreciate his small yet terrific scene. 9/10

One of the Most Melancholic Films I Have Ever SeenReviewed byClaudio CarvalhoVote: 9/10

In 1914, in London, the former successful and presently decadent and alcoholic clown Calvero (Charles Chaplin) smells gas in the building where he lives and breaks in an apartment. He finds the suicidal Thereza 'Terry' Ambrose (Claire Bloom) laying down on her bed and he brings a doctor that saves her. They do not report to the police and Calvero nurses her in his apartment.

He leans that Terry was a ballet dancer that had a problem in her legs that are paralyzed. However, the doctor tells to Calvero that she has not a physical, but actually a psychological problem with her legs. He emotionally supports her and she recovers her health and becomes a successful ballerina. Meanwhile Calvero is also affected by Terry and quits drinking. Calvero tries to rebuild his career in the show business and while Terry falls in love with him but age must pass as youth enters.

"Limelight" is one of the most melancholic films that I have ever seen. I saw this movie for the first time when I was very young but watching "Limelight" older and older, I realized how depressive this tragic story is. The haunting music score was awarded with the Oscar of Best Music, Original Dramatic Score. My vote is nine.
