M [M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder]
Directed By: Fritz Lang
1931 / German / 99 min
Lang’s first sound film is a masterpiece combining the dynamic visual aesthetic of late-silent film with innovative approaches to sound technology. Police and criminal gangs race each other to find the child murderer terrorizing the city in this proto-noir tour de force of German expressionist cinema.
