His use of symbols provides a greater insight into the film, thus revealing society’s problems to his audience. Through the actions of the Kid’s rich biological father in rejecting the Kid’s mother and indirectly forcing her to abandon the child, Chaplin highlights the uncaring ignorance of the upper class on poverty and sufferings among the working class. He goes further and describes the poor conditions in which the working class lived when the Tramp takes the Kid to his apartment, tiny, dirty, and in need of repair and even sanitation. The inadequate conditions of the room are unchanging throughout the film and even worsen over time (The Kid), portraying the reality of the working class in the capitalist society of the twentieth century. In an attempt to bring the Kid back to his birth mother, the Country Orphan Asylum forcibly takes the boy away from the Tramp (The Kid).
Citizens who married for love, and came from poverty were mostly those who suffered. They had filthy clothes, dirty faces and so called “lower class” accents. The industrial revolution caused, as mentioned earlier, great changes between the classes there were and made extreme differences between people`s behaviour, clothing and jobs just to mention a few. The scene in the film where David will be abandoned from his stepfather after his mum and baby brother died and being sent to work in a factory, shows the best example of how the industrial revolution influenced people`s behaviour. The way the leader in the factory talks to David shows the lack of trust and belief in poor people which developed during the industrialization.
Most of the characters in Les Miserables are victims of society, depicting the poor social conditions that people would have encountered during the 1800s. Their impoverished lives as well as the desperate means they go to, to change their situation are portrayed in the film. The social conditions seen in the film reflect the situation most of France was suffering under at the time. The film begins with the protagonist of the film, Jean Valjean. He is the product of the society he lived in, as the dire social conditions led him to stealing a loaf of bread, due to poverty and the questionable system of justice that put him in prison for his crime.
This disgusting man took advantage of a poor immigrant girl. This is an example of the way the upper class mistreated the lower class and got away with it in the capitalist society. The family goes through many trials caused by other people, the same way many people in the lower class society went through in America. Events like these are the reason “The Jungle” initially appears as literary fiction. Although the novel may appear as literary fiction early on, it takes a twist around chapter 21 when Antanas Rudkus dies on the streets.
The Demented Doctor “The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we’re doing it.” said Josef Mengele. He knew his own wrong doings all too well. This seemed to be the hard cold truth to every soul that was taken by the “Angel of Death”. This Angel of Death was cruel and horrible in every way imaginable. The poor souls of these prisoners were so brainwashed that they began to see him as a father.
Many people came from the farms to live in London to be thieves or to work in dirty factories and earn little wages. The high poverty rates indirectly caused the crime rates to rise. Poverty leads to murders, violence, bloody, guilt, terrible imprisonment, insane revenge and sadistic tendencies. The exploitation leads the violence and marginalization. Crime was a great problem in London in 1830s.
