Perhaps the most famous German film of all time, and certainly one of the most influential of all silent films, this restoration of "Metropolis" is the most complete and authentic since its day or release in 1927. The setting is the future, where people are divided into two groups: poor workers living beneath the ground, and the rich who enjoy a decadent city of luxury. The tense balance of these two societies is realized through images that are among the most famous of the 20th century, influencing later science-fiction films such as "Blade Runner" and "Star Wars."
