Born in Vienna, Fritz Lang (1890-1976) became one of Germany’s and Hollywood’s most famous directors. This fictional documentary, directed by Gordian Maugg, shows how Lang’s first sound film, “M”, starring Peter Lorre, came to be. It also presents a biographical story of Lang that is gripping but speculative.
Produced solely in black and white as an ingenious mosaic of documentary fragments, live scenes, and scenes from the movie “M”, Maugg’s film is a first class psychological thriller.
Fritz Lang Films include: Metropolis, Destiny, Dr. Mabuse, Die Nibelungen, M, You only live once, Scrarlet Street, and many more
