Synopsis

Faust, a learned and prayerful alchemist who is struggling with his faith amidst a devastating plague, is offered the power to cure and the gift of youth…in exchange for his soul. An adaptation of Goethe’s iconic eponymous novel.

Our take

Cinema’s most classic rendition of the Faust story. A big-budget German “super-film” from the era of Metropolis, F.W. Murnau’s final German masterpiece still dazzles audiences worldwide with light and darkness.
