Empty Space in Fritz Lang's 'M' - A Supercut

Fritz Lang’s 1931 film ‘M’ is renowned for many reasons. One of the fascinating visual choices it makes is the repeated use of empty spaces: the film regularly cuts to shots of vacant locations, or holds a shot for just too long after the subjects have exited frame. This is a supercut of every time this happens in the film.
