Backed by the vast, state-operated Ufa, the film was a milestone in cinematic technique involving thousands of extras, astounding futuristic sets and groundbreaking special effects. Now, with Eureka Video's double disc special edition release, it is possible to view "Metropolis" with a photographic quality that comes extremely close to the visual impression made by the premiere copy of 1927, and brings to a successful close the efforts of various film archives to reconstruct and preserve this quite extraordinary film. A fascinating celebration of a timeless classic that will astound and entertain, this is a must-have release for any serious film collection. To coincide with the double disc special edition release, Eureka, in conjunction with Arrow films, is also releasing ~ theatrically in two London venues on 17 January 2003 - the NFT and The Other Cinema (formally know as The Metro) - followed by a regional screening programme.
