Well worth renting

Rented this with luke-warm expectations, and both myself and my wife really enjoyed it. It's atmospheric and impressive, with a timeless quality. The 'future-vision' of the twenties is interesting to see, and many of the visulas remain impressive - the architecture, and the robot, especially. It's worthwhile googling the actors and crew involved after you've seen it, to see what became of them - practically everybody who mattered in pre-war German cinema was involved. If you like movies and are interested in cinema, don't miss this.

I can't really describe this movie well enough. It has a powerful heart to it, a feeling of real epicness, yet a soft look at the humanity involved. It starts well, but gets a little over the top towards the end, but still worth a good look.
