“The mediator of the head and the hands must be the heart.”

The 2010 restored version of Metropolis is given a fresh treatment in March 2020 at the Tampere Film Festival 50th anniversary concert where the film is accompanied by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra at Tampere Hall. The concert will be held on March 7th at 19.00.

Gottfried Huppertz’s classical and modernist score creates the mood for the visually stunning film. The concert is conducted by Frank Strobel who has previously performed the piece with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Fritz Lang’s Metropolis is a science fiction landmark and one of the first feature films of the genre. Released in 1927, Metropolis was a massive production in its time with a year and a half of filming and a budget the equivalent of 13 million euros. The highlights of Lang’s ambitious epic are the impressive special effects, gigantic set pieces and thousands of extras. The Tower of Babel, the enormous clock and the skyscrapers create a stunning visual impact.
