Movie Summary

Director:
Fritz Lang
Released:
2008
Rating:
Not Available

M (Enhanced) 1931 is the classic German crime thriller that launched a whole genre of cinematic serial killer stories, most of which have rarely equaled its power and impact, directed by legendary filmmaker Fritz Lang (Metropolis, The Last Will of Dr. Mabuse). The crux of the story is that there is a serial killer - we later learn named Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre, Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, Arsenic and Old Lace) - targeting young girls in a large German City. The time period is the film's present. The police are having difficulty catching the killer, who is regularly making the headlines of the local paper, especially as he keeps writing taunting notes to be published. After the latest murder, a large vigilante group of panicked citizens, including a fair number of criminals, decides to take action. They organize, dividing up the city into quadrants for different people to patrol, and they try to keep the police uninvolved.
