Metropolis

Like all the other sons of the managers of Metropolis, Fredersen's son Freder lives a life of luxury in the theatres and stadiums of the skyscraper buildings. One day, as he is playing in the Eternal Gardens, he notices that a beautiful girl has appeared with many children of the workers. She is quickly shooed away, but Freder becomes infatuated with her and follows her down to the workers' underworld. There, he experiences firsthand the horrors of the workers' life, and is disgusted when he sees an enormous machine, known as the M-Machine, violently explode and kill dozens of workers. In the smoke, Freder envisions the M-Machine as Moloch, a monstrous deity to which the hapless workers are sacrificed.

    Masterpeice!
    All futuristic sci-fi spectacles made after 1927 are more or less rip offs of Metropolis.
    If you are interested in movie-history then you have to see this film.

    Featured in the book "1001 movies you have to see before you die"

    I have nerver been an "art freak", but I have no words on how sad it is that some sequences got lost during the hands of time. Pure tragic... I would love to see the complete movie.. Or ask Tim Burton if he could do a remake.. =)

    About the moive. Totaly brilliant! Just love the "spirit" of the movies from the good old days and this movie beats the crap out of some newer movies in special effect way. Not to mention the "ambient".. Almost 100years ago this was made and still a high standard..

    See it. It's a must. German could be ggo to know.. =).

    Regards
