Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis

From Japan comes this impressive work of sci-fi animation. Director Rintaro (Galaxy Express 999) and writer Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira) have taken Osamu Tezuka's classic comic book and turned it into an epic social parable wrapped up in fairy tale tones. Story concerns a detective and his young nephew who come to the teeming future city of Metropolis to find a rogue scientist experimenting with illegal cyborg technology. In Japanese with English subtitles. 107 minutes
