M (German: M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder — M - A city looks for a murderer) is a 1931 German drama-thriller film directed by Fritz Lang and starring Peter Lorre. The film was written by Lang and his wife, Thea von Harbou, and was the director's first sound film. The film revolves around the actions of a serial killer of children and the manhunt for him, conducted by both the police and the criminal underworld. Now considered a classic, the film was deemed by Fritz Lang to be his finest work.
Walaupun film ini dilarang penayangannya oleh The Nazis pada Juli 1934, film ini cukup menuai tanggapan positif dari masyarakat luas. Film ini juga masuk ke dalam '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' oleh Steven Schneider.
