In Fritz Lang's startling and exquisite film M, fear stalks the streets of Berlin in the form of a serial child murderer whose grisly accomplishments are so heinous even the criminal minds of the underworld want him dead. Filmed in post-Weimar Germany during the infancy of the Nazi state, this tale of moral depravity serves not just as an allegory for the need of justice for all, but as an ominous foreshadowing of the sort of societal hysteria that leads to cultural witch hunts. Originally titled "Morder Unter Uns" ("Murderers Among Us"), M was one of Peter Lorre's (CASABLANCA) first major film roles. Fritz Lang's expressionistic eye plunges into the dark cityscape of Berlin, as he follows the killer whistling down the street, seducing small children with toys and candy, and eventually fleeing for his life. A city paralyzed by fear, and a vast criminal underground network of blind beggars, thieves and murderers, as well as an unforgettable climax notable for its startling statement about the murderous nature which resides within human beings, are all rendered in Lang's painterly cinematography of sharp angles, dark corners and breakneck pacing.

    The subject matter of this film is hard to deal with as a parent. There is a child murderer on the loose and no one can seem to stop or find him. Yes children die, but rather than see the details, it is more implied. Eventually the Criminal Society gets feed up with the constant Police raids and bands together to stop a Child Murderer; as the Police are having a hard time of it.There is a lost art to the film that is no longer seen today. For a film to be tense and sad doesn't need to involve graphic violence or sexual acts, the mind can come up with many possible scenarios without film makers putting it all out there. This is one of my favorite movies and I think that it is one that everyone should see.
