Synopsis

Set in a highly-stylized city where a beautiful utopia exists above a bleak underworld, privileged youth Freder discovers the grim scene beneath the surface and sets out to free the downtrodden workers with the aid of rebellious teacher Maria.

Our take

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.
