A period piece in the best sense.
It's well worth a look today as simultaneously vindicating Clair's former high reputation and his subsequent expulsion from most critical pantheons.
A Nous, la Liberté is assuredly different from any other screen feature. It bristles with strange originality.
An engrossing satire on modern society's belief in the new industrialization age, showing the Machine was not mankind's salvation.
Compared to his contemporaries Jean Renoir and Jean Vigo, Clair was a minor talent, though both of these films do contain innovative uses of sound mixed with silent film.
...displays Clair's mastery of artful whimsy by mixing sound (especially song), sweet-faced storytelling, and visual skill.
Influential French comedy about a world beyond work.
One of French director Rene Clair's great films, this 1931 poignant exploration of the working conditions of industrial laborers was nominated for the Interior Decoration Oscar.
The French have no equal when it comes to perfectly aligned bottom-kicking, showing revulsion at the ill-breeding of others, or performing semi-socialist slapstick.
All of the layers are brought together through Clair's clever use of sound and image.
Its themes are couched in so much wit and silliness that it doesn't take a communist to enjoy it.
Wildly funny, endlessly creative, experimental and utterly charming, it is a too-often overlooked classic.
A great movie with a great message.
A very fun little gem. It's very clasically cute, with all its slapstick and its musicalization. The story is a critical comparison of a prison and a factory! Chaplin drew inspiration from it for Modern Times. It isn't a must see but it's one of those movies that can be appreciated for their simplicity, their wit and their charm.
