Faust (Restored Version)

F. W. Murnau, 1926, Germany

Newly restored. Inspired by the German legend and by Goethe's classic tale, Murnau's Faust tells the story of an alchemist (played by Gosta Ekman) who, struggling with his faith amidst a devastating plague, is offered the power to cure and the gift of youth ... in exchange for his soul. As the diabolical Mephisto, Emil Jannings (The Last Laugh) delivers a performance of operatic scale and intensity, by turns charming, comical, and horrific.
