These are the Roaring Twenties!
310 days of shooting, 36,000 extras, 200,000 costumes and the gigantic budget of five million Reichsmarks - a universal, timeless subject was transformed into pictures that have not lost their fascination to this day. (Deutsche Kinemathek)
Like no other film, METROPOLIS represents the heyday of the German silent film made in Berlin - Babelsberg. Electricity got things moving, lighting up the nights and the asphalt.
The engine drove the car and the airplane, and the lift grew the skyscrapers. The cinematograph threw the vision / illusion of a future metropolis on the white walls of the cinema palaces and the people rose from the catacombs and demanded his fair share. A new era was born and is brought to life on the gold-framed canvas by the Babylon Orchestra Berlin in Babylon, built in 1929 in old / new splendor.
