Frau im Mond (By Rocket to the Moon) (Woman in the Moon)
A brave woman takes part in the first journey to the moon in a quest for extraterrestrial gold. Although mostly far-fetched, this melodramatic late silent sci-fi story is scientifically accurate in many respects, with effective special-effects and grand visual design.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fritz Lang's last silent film is nothing special, looking more like the work of Lang's wife and screenwriter (and Nazi-to-be) Thea von Harbou."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Magnificent science fiction epic."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"As opposed to the furious ellipsis of Spies, the launchpad countdown does not arrive until after the midway point, Lang's intro leisurely laying in human detail to contrast with the sense of dwarfing technology to follow."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The last silent film by Fritz Lang."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"In Lang's overlong but intriguing space oddity, the realities of flight clash with the reveries of the characters."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"Mirroring the director's own passions for fantasy literature, Gustav's youthful optimism disproves the too-superficial reading of Lang as a monocled, perfectionist tyrant."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Slant Magazine
