Considered by many to be the mother of all sci-fi films, Fritz Lang and his co-writer Thea von Harbou’s imaginative world of revolutionaries, mad scientists and robots has exerted a profound impact on the visual language of science fiction, influencing everything from Star Wars to Blade Runner.

"A dizzyingly creative work..." 

Set in a futuristic utopia whose prosperity in fact relies on the exploitation of countless subterranean workers who toil day and night, Metropolis is a dizzyingly creative work where Norse mythology and religious imagery meet German Expressionism, social commentary and a dozen other concepts and styles besides. Every penny of the film’s enormous budget is visible on screen and Metropolis features some of the most impressive sets ever built.
