In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city’s mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
Alex chose this film because “Metropolis was one of the first movies that truly blew me away. I couldn’t believe something this majestic existed, and from the silent era. It’s still dazzling, almost a century later!”
