  1. The most memorable and expressive shot from the opening of M for me is unfortunately not included in the clip posted on Youtube. It comes a minute or two later, with Frau Beckmann waiting for Elsie to come home. There's a lingering cutaway to a cuckoo clock hanging on the wall of the apartment. The clock is off-center in the frame, but an intense light to the left causes the clock to cast a deep shadow that is perfectly centered in the frame. The significance of the passing time on the psychology of Frau Beckmann as she waits for Elsie (knowing full well by this point that something is wrong)
