Metropolis: Reconstructed and Restored - The Masters of Cinema...
Restored version of the Fritz Lang classic containing an extra 25 minutes of new footage previously thought lost.
Lang's acclaimed vision of a 21st century city is widely held to be one of the greatest films of the silent era.
In the year 2000, industrialist John Frederson (Alfred Abel) rules over a giant city where the workers exist only as an underclass.
They call for rebellion, but their leader Maria (Brigitte Helm) urges them to wait for a mediator.
When Frederson kidnaps Maria and replaces her with a robot replica, the workers are incited to revolt.
