Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

The greatest comedian of all time finally leaves behind 'The Tramp' the character that made him famous, and here plays a serial killer, a very affable and charming one, though. A gem of black comedy, in which Chaplin showed a little wickedness, without abandoning his social commentary nor his sentimentality. He easily proves why murder can be also a laughing matter.
