If your familiar with Fritz Langs "Metropolis" You'll get it. It can be taken two (both) ways depnding on your frame of mind. If not familiar with Metropolis do a google search. Even better watch the flick. considered a classic example of German expressionism. In brief...

"Metropolis is a 1927 silent German expressionism science fiction film directed by Fritz Lang and written by Lang and Thea von Harbou. Lang and von Harbou, who were married, wrote the screenplay in 1924, and published a novelization in 1926, before the film was released. Produced in Germany during a stable period of the Weimar Republic, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and examines a common science fiction theme of the day: the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism. The film stars Alfred Abel as the leader of the city, Gustav Fröhlich as his son, who tries to mediate between the elite caste and the workers, Brigitte Helm as both the pure-at-heart worker Maria and the debased robot version of her, and Rudolf Klein-Rogge as the mad scientist who creates the robot."

I am a great fan of silent films and Lang's Metropolis is one of the most memorable of all from that time. Many of the films from that era have been an inspiration to me: Nosferatu, The Casket of Dr Caligari, everything ever done by Lon Cheny Sr, the list goes on and on.
