Metropolis (1927) Sometime in the future, the city of Metropolis is home to a Utopian society where its wealthy residents live a carefree life... This influential Fritz Lang science-fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When the privileged youth Freder discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher Maria, but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict.
