Synopsis

An influential German sci-fi set in a highly-stylized city where a beautiful utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by downtrodden workers. Privileged youth Freder discovers the grim scene beneath the surface and sets out to free them with the aid of rebellious teacher Maria.

Our take

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the passing of a legend: Fritz Lang. Easily one of the most iconic films ever made, his classic future shock is still thrilling: a propulsive sci-fi epic, a mind-blowing visual symphony, and a time-honored gateway to the marvels of silent film. Restored in HD.
