Metropolis: Reconstructed and Restored Film Poster


Restored version of the Fritz Lang classic containing an extra 25 minutes of new footage previously thought lost. Lang's acclaimed vision of a 21st century city is widely held to be one of the greatest films of the silent era. In the year 2000, industrialist John Frederson (Alfred Abel) rules over a giant city where the workers exist only as an underclass. They call for rebellion, but their leader Maria (Brigitte Helm) urges them to wait for a mediator. When Frederson kidnaps Maria and replaces her with a robot replica, the workers are incited to revolt.
