Metropolis (1927)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Metropolis (1927) It is the future, and humans are divided into two groups: the thinkers, who make plans (but don't know how anything works), and the workers, who achieve goals (but don't have the vision). Completely separate, neither group is complete, but together they make a whole. One man from the "thinkers" dares visit the underground where the workers toil, and is astonished by what he sees...

Movie Tagline:
There can be no understanding between the hands and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.

More Movie Taglines:
  • There can be no understanding between the hands and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Freder: It was their hands that built this city of ours, Father. But where do the hands belong in your scheme? Joh Frederson: In their proper place, the depths.
  • Maria: There can be no understanding between the hand and the brain unless the heart acts as mediator.
  • Maria: "We shall build a tower that will reach to the stars!" Having conceived Babel, yet unable to build it themselves, they had thousands to build it for them. But those who toiled knew nothing of the dreams of those who planned. And the minds that planned the Tower of Babel cared nothing for the workers who built it. The hymns of praise of the few became the curses of the many - BABEL! BABEL! BABEL! - Between the mind that plans and the hands that build there must be a Mediator, and this must be the heart.
  • Man at Nightclub: For her, all seven deadly sins!
Movie Trivia:
  • Film included more than 37,000 extras including 25,000 men, 11,000 women, 1,100 bald men, 750 children, 100 dark-skinned people and 25 Asians.
  • Reportedly one of Adolf Hitler's favorite films.
  • Being one of the most expensive movies of the time, costing around 5,000,000 marks, this film nearly sent UFA (Universum Film) into bankruptcy.
  • The restored version of 2001 is based on a digital restoration at 2K resolution from the best available sources. The image quality far surpasses anything seen since the original release of the film.
  • No optical printing system existed at the time, so to create a matte effect, a large mirror was placed at an angle to reflect a piece of artwork while live footage was projected onto the reverse. To expose the projected footage, the silvering on the back of the mirror had to be scraped off in strategically appropriate places. One mistake would ruin the whole mirror. This was done for each separate shot that had to be composited in this manner. This procedure was developed by Eugen Schüfftan and is known as the "Schufftan Process."
