A Nous La Liberte

"A Nous La Liberte" may be most famous as Charlie Chaplin's inspiration for "Modern Times", but it is historically significant in several areas - foremost, perhaps, for its analogy between factory work and being confined in a prison. An impressive example of early sound production in France, the film is considered the masterpiece of director Rene Clair and is notable for the superb production design of Lazare Meerson, who received a rare Oscar nomination for a non-English language film.
