Description

Details

Fritz Lang directs this classic German thriller starring Peter Lorre and Otto Wernicke.

The city of Berlin is being terrorised by a notorious child molester (Lorre) and, frustrated by the failure of the police to catch the culprit, the city's criminal underworld organises itself to hunt him down.

A nighmarish vision of mob justice which created the template for the serial-killer thriller, M is an arresting and unsettling cornerstone of Weimar-era cinema.
