Product Description

Metropolis DVD from DVDLand.

Metropolis DVD Reconstructed and Restored for the first time.

Perhaps the most famous and influential of all silent films, Metropolis had for 75 years been seen only in shortened or truncated versions.

Metropolis takes place in 2026, when the populace is divided between workers who must live in the dark underground and the rich who enjoy a futuristic city of splendour. The tense balance of these two societies is realised through images that are among the most famous of the 20th century, many of which presage such sci-fi landmarks as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner. Lavish and spectacular, with elaborate sets and modern science fiction style, Metropolis stands today as the crowning achievement of the German silent cinema.

The world's first Science-Fiction blockbuster Metrolpolis bankrupted its studio when audiences stayed away from its dystopian vision of a future where the leisurely rich repress the working poor. Recut again and again Lang's original "director's cut" was long believed lost. Until 2008 when 25 minutes of footage was discovered in Buenos Aires. Now in it's original glory we present in full Metropolis Reconstructed and Restored.

Note: All our DVDs are new Australian region 4 DVDs made for Australian DVD players.
