Sinossi

In Tomania il dittatore Adenoid Hynkel scatena la repressione contro gli ebrei. La bella Hannah e il suo innamorato, un barbiere straordinariamente somigliante a Hynkel, fuggono. Il barbiere, dapprima catturato, scappa dal lager e si imbatte per caso nel vero dittatore che viene arrestato in vece sua. Dai microfoni del führer il barbiere pronuncia al mondo un lungo messaggio di pace e speranza. Primo film interamente parlato di Chaplin, è una geniale satira antinazista realizzata quando le armate del Terzo Reich avevano ormai soggiogato l'intera Europa. Tra le sequenze da antologia, la danza di Hynkel con il mappamondo e i duetti con Napoloni/ Mussolini.
