The greatest science fiction film of the silent cinema, made with an unprecedented budget, and an intention to create impressively huge sets inspired by the New York skyline. The technical wizard, Eugen Schuftan, invented a new special effects process which combined real action with models. The story involves a conflict between Capital and Labor which develops into an allegory of totalitarianism, and ends with a romantic reconciliation through love and religion.
