Fritz Lang's expressionist science-fiction masterpiece was a film ahead of it's time, telling the story of a dystopian future society where the rich live above ground in a fantastic utopia while the working class slave away underground. Featuring a new restoration of the film including 25 minutes of lost footage and the original score by Gottfried Huppertz, "Metropolis (The Complete Metropolis)" is the ultimate collector's edition of the film. The stunning Blu-ray also includes a brand new documentary onthe making and restoration of the influential movie landmark.
Incorporating more than 25 minutes of newly discovered footage, this 2010 restoration of METROPOLIS is the definitive edition of Fritz Lang's science fiction masterpiece. Backed by a new recording of Gottfried Huppertz's 1927 score, the film's dazzling visual design and special effects are more striking than ever. And the integration of scenes and subplots long considered lost endows METROPOLIS with even greater tension and emotional resonance, as it dramatizes the conflict between wealthy uber-capitalists and rebellious subterranean laborers - orchestrated by a diabolical scientist capable of destroying them both.
