Not to be confused with the classic silent German film, Metropolis is an adaptation of Osama Tezuka's manga of the same name. Tezuka is often regarded as the Father of Anime, as he created such icons as Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. As such, Metropolis may be the
best adaptation of his manga works.
A stunningly haunting sci-fi story that addresses the issues of class and human experience. The robots are portrayed as soulful creatures with empathy and kindness. But what sells it, again, is the incredible animation, which, again, tells so much of the story alongside what is being said.
