Monsieur Verdoux

Henri Verdoux is a man who lures wealthy women by promising them love and sweet happy-ever-afters. But once the wedding bells have chimed he murders them for their fortunes. As ever, this isn’t just a simple, dark comedy. Whilst invoking the usual fits of laughter, Chaplin also encourages his audience to ask many questions, this time on the nature of evil.
