Metropolis is reborn in Germany
It is amazing to think that the mother of all science fiction films Metropolis was first seen in 1927. It cost five million Reichsmarks, had a cast of almost forty thousand and took around seventeen months to make and yet the full version of this great film has not been seen for eighty three years.
The original version was cut to shreds by the distributor Paramount; names were changed and in total around thirty minutes worth of content was cut.
That was how the film remained as the original film had been lost or so everyone thought, because the missing pieces turned up in Buenos Aires a couple of years ago and now the film has been fully restored to its former glory, just how Fritz Lang would have liked.
