In der technokratischen Riesenstadt Metropolis leben Arbeiter und Oberschicht völlig isoliert voneinander. Arbeiter müssen in den Tiefen der Erde vegetieren und wohnen in engen Massenunterkünften. Die Reichen und Mächtigen aber residieren hoch über dem Boden von Metropolis.

Darum sehenswert

Easily one of the most iconic films ever made, Fritz Lang’s classic future shock is still thrilling. A propulsive epic and mind-blowing visual symphony, Lang’s deeply influential vision is both the foundation of sci-fi cinema and a time-honored gateway to the expressive wonders of silent film.

Metropolis Regie Fritz Lang
The first modern blockbuster, the big-budget big bang, but it clinches that title only owing in part to its visionary grandiosity, its awesome scale, its ribald ridiculousness.

Lang’s aerial views of choreographed crowds are positively Riefenstahlian; his sky-scraping, heavens-reaching city looks glorious as ever. Metropolis marshals all the resources of the German film industry to warn against the persuasive streamlining of mass production and new media; it must, paradoxically, be seen to be believed.

As modern as Bauhaus yet as ancient as Zhuangzi, who warned that “where there are machine worries, there are bound to be machine hearts.” Meticulous constructions carry the sustained frenzy, all of the visual arts summoned and piled high into a fractured Tower of Babel, a panorama of pistons and gears where the camera emerges as the most ferocious mechanism of all.
