Wonderful classic film drama,
This review is from: M [Masters of Cinema] [DVD] (DVD)
I wondered if Fritz Lang's "M" might be too "historical" before I saw this DVD which restores the original print and includes several passages which had been omitted from earlier versions of the film. I should not have been worried. This movie is not a mere historical "classic", it is a powerfully dramatic and completely contemporary drama that raises issues of morality and justice which are wholly and entirely relevant now. Indeed no concessions need be made to the age of the film, either in terms of its appearance, the acting style or, as I've said, the content and significance of the work.
See it and wonder at its mastery.
