Singin´ in the Rain (USA)


Singin´ in the Rain, Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen, USA, 1953, 103 mins., English with Czech subtitles, entry: 70,-

A timeless classic from the best era of the American musical and a witty film-about-filmmaking set in the turbulent times of the conversion to sound cinema. The irresistible Gene Kelly as the lead who can make a street lamp dance and transform a series of tongue-twisters into a jolly song. The influence of the film spans from Damien Chazelle´s La La Land over a VW commercial to the famous rape-scene from Stanley Kubrick´s A Clockwork Orange.
