Set in 2026, Metropolis is a city where an underground community of overworked labourers run the machinery that maintains the existence of the Utopian world above ground.
Things begin to change, when the son of the city’s master falls in love with a girl, who happens to be the prophet of the working class.
A visually awe-inspiring science fiction classic from the silent era.
