Metropolis (Director's Cut - New Score) Film Poster


Yet another revamped version of Fritz Lang's 1926 silent classic. In the year 2000, industrialist John Frederson rules over a giant city where the workers exist only as an underclass. They call for rebellion, but their leader Maria urges them to wait for a mediator. When Frederson kidnaps Maria and replaces her with a robot replica, the workers are incited to revolt. Giorgio Moroder produced a shorter, colourised version of the film in 1984, complete with rock soundtrack. This version contains a newly recorded and digitally mastered score.
