The future. Metropolis is a wonderful city, its towers are high above the ground. People are thriving, the economy is flourishing, the floating streets are bustling with activity. But Metropolis also has a big secret, so hidden that not even Freder Fredersen, the son of the founder Joh Fredersen, knows about it. He spends his free time in the Eternal Gardens when suddenly a woman appears who looks like a class of children. They come from the city of workers, Freder learns. "These are your brothers," she tells the children before she is forced to leave. Freder is so fascinated that he follows them in the depths and does not like what he sees. The workers are exploited, they have to work like robots. Freder tries to persuade his father to change as the woman tries to uphold the morale of the workers by predicting that a man standing up will mediate. Someone who uses both hands and the head, someone who will be the heart.
Metropolis is one of my favorite movies directed by Fritz Lang. First of all, I need to say that Metropolis is not like the other Drama movies made according to the usual scheme. You'll remember many scenes and dialogues from this movie, it's a great source for memes. Of course I also remember about the top hollywood cast. The man who directed Metropolis is Fritz Lang. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
