Extraordinary director Fritz Lang tackles the climate of fear in 1930’s Germany in the story of serial murderer Hans Becker (the brilliant Peter Lorre). As Berlin descends into shadow criminals and the police both take part in the man hunt for the city’s most wanted killer. "Long before Psycho, The Silence of the Lambs or Se7en, one far-ahead-of-its-time German film struck fear into viewers’ hearts with its tale of a child-killer at loose in the city. Even today, Fritz Lang’s M still looks astonishingly modern."Highly controversial on its release, M is now regarded as one of Lang’s masterworks exploring justice, mob rule and the darkest recesses of the human psyche.
