Fritz Langs “Metropolis” in der 1984 Giorgio Moroder Edition

Ich wusste, dass Jeff Mills den Film mal mit Techno versehen hat, wusste aber bis eben nicht, dass Fritz Langs “Metropolis” im Jahr 1984 mit einer Soundversion von Giorgio Moroder neu veröffentlicht wurde, habe diese vorher auch nicht gehört. Jetzt aber.

Numerous attempts have been made to restore the film since the 1970s. Music producer Giorgio Moroder released a truncated version with a soundtrack by rock artists such as Freddie Mercury, Loverboy and Adam Ant in 1984. A new reconstruction of Metropolis was shown at the Berlin Film Festival in 2001, and the film was inscribed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register in the same year, the first film thus distinguished. In 2008 a damaged print of Lang’s original cut of the film was found in a museum in Argentina. After a long restoration process, the film was 95% restored and shown on large screens in Berlin and Frankfurt simultaneously on 12 February 2010.
