I know that it is forbidden to share official stuff here. But if someone will be interested I can give a little "hint" to help find the place where it can be downloaded.

While being official, this version of a famous movie is long time out of print, so it's impossible to buy it in any store. For Queen fans it's interesting for the first place because it features Freddie's Love Kills (specially co-written by Freddie and Giorgio for this project) and because some bits of the movie were used in Radio Ga Ga video. I recommend to watch this version although some critics says that Moroder's version do not make justice for Fritz Lang's 1927 classic silent movie. I find it very enjoyable and think that Moroder's 80's music score strangely enough suits movie well. Plus this version is one of the most complete version available as some scenes of the movie was lost forever. So if anyone is interested I can tell where you can find a working torrent to download a DVD transfer from laserdisc.

just because it is out of print, wich i doubt, it doesn't mean that you can no longer buy it. there are lot of stores that carry old DVD's and you can always resort to second hand dealers.~

This shouldn't be shared as a torrent period.

Is that a Laserdisc tranfer as well? Despite loads of petitions, the Moroder version has never officially been released on DVD.

No it's from the original DVD I've bought once.

The Moroder's version was never released on dvd and probably never will be as current copyright holders of Metropolis are not delighted with it.
Also there's new more complete version available. It has it's original orchestral music score and it's been digitally restored frame by frame. So it looks absolutely fabulous as it was shot yesterday (Moroder's version drastically fails in comparison). So basiclly nobody care much about Moroder's version.

Made a mistake here. I do have Metropolis on DVD but that's the original movie with no sound. I must have taken the clip with Love Kills from the VHS video tape I recorded from a television broadcast of that movie.

Actually, the most "complete" version of the film with the best image quality is the "KINO VIDEO" DVD that was released a couple of years ago.

However...I still prefer the Giorgio Moroder version mainly because I prefer the soundtrack. That was the first version of the film I ever saw (in a movie theater in 1984) and I associate Moroder's soundtrack with the film. I bought the Laserdisc of it a few years ago on eBay.
