Fritz Lang's classic presents a vision of a utopian city of the future with a dark side.
Beneath the gleaming skyscrapers of the metropolis, a downtrodden mass of workers toil ceaselessly underground for the benefit of the elite above.
The city's ruler creates a robot to incite a revolt and lead the rebels to their deaths - thus making room for a less troublesome robot workforce.
Lang's expressionist masterpiece has been painstakingly restored, colourised, and re-edited under the initiative of Georgio Moroder to create a thoroughly modern interpretation of this silent classic with music by Moroder, Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Loverboy, Billy Squier and Cycle V.
