7 June-18 Sept 2005. Charlie Chaplins films have accompanied us since our youth and have made him one of the 20th centurys best-loved characters. Le Jeu de Paume presents an exhibition of photos, video extracts and other documents of the artist at work. What was the life-path of the poor London child who went on to conquer America? How did he create the Little Tramp character? How did he turn the character into an adult against the rise of nazism? The exhibition retraces this wonderful life story. Tickets cost 6, 3 with discount.
