M is Fritz Lang's true masterpiece, even outshining the more famous METROPOLIS. Finally a DVD has come along that does it considerably more justice than Peter Lorre, starring as Hans Beckert, seems to be getting in the films famous climactic scenes.
Inge Landgut, as Elsie Beckmann, Beckerts victim at the start of the film is an excellent young actress, who portrays the naivety of youth superbly, and the way in which Lang "shows" her murder is handled with an understated style that makes it far more frightening than later, more explicit horror films.
The package put together by Eureka is spot on, the remastered film shining through in awesome quality, the cover grabbing you, making you want to see the film, and the documentaries and extras being of a remarkably consistent standard throughout.
A great film far ahead of it's time, and always worth watching.
