Not in the same league as Metropolis but still very impressive
"Frau im mond" is undoubtedly one of the first and most important Sci-Fi movies ever made. Directed by Austrian director Fritz Lang best known for his masterpieces "M" and "Metropolis", it's a story of a half-mad greedy scientist obsessed with the idea of getting gold from the moon and a moon expedition that follows, there is also a love story that goes along. The look of the film is quite impressive, considered that it was made in 1929. Hitler later banned it, because the spaceship featured there was nearly identical to V-2s that were constructed in secrecy by the Third Reich at the time. An early Sci-Fi classic, a must see for any serious Sci-Fi fan. 8/10
