Argentine film historians find a complete print of "Metropolis" and take it to Germany for restoration. The story includes the discovery itself, the history of the 35mm print (later converted to 16mm), a showing in 1959, what historians knew about the missing scenes, and the often-frustrated search. Fernando Martin Pena and Paula Felix-Dider carry the narration, Enno Patalas verifies the discovery, and scholars at the Murnau Institut and the Deutsche Kinemathek are on camera when they see the print. The story concludes with evidence of multiple takes available for distributors to construct their own prints, which varied greatly from country to country. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Account of the discovery of the missing METROPOLIS footage.
13 September 2010 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Not a great piece of non fiction film, talking head interviews spaced by scratchy shots from the DVD off the sixteen millimeter dupe neg, but particularly interesting for film freaks.

The Argies were ignored, when they wrote Germany to say they had the film complete with missing material. However someone gets to see their DVD and there is dropping of jaws. Enno Patalas, was gratified that he had just about put his reconstruction back the way it was meant to go. One of the One of the Argentinians adds that it was all right to extend the German version (which is much better quality) but Argentinian one was a work in itself, made from a second negative, having different paced versions of the same scenes and shots with different details,

The most winning subject is the girl who grins into the camera at the end and says "I found Metropolis. I found Metropolis!"
