Metropolis (Rintaro 2001)
A Japanese anime film loosely based on both Frtiz Lang’s classic film from 1927 as well as the 1949 manga adaptation, the film is set in the futuristic dystopia of Metropolis as it follows Kenichi and his uncle Shunkasu Ban, as they try to unravel the mystery behind robot girl Tima. A visually stunning work that was praised as a remarkable technical achievement, the film is also an ingenuous reworking of the original story for a twenty-first century audience.
