Inspired by the German legend and by Goethe's classic tale, Murnau's Faust tells the story of an alchemist (played by Gösta 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.
With this restoration, the spellbinding images produced in Faust, such as the classic shot of a horned, black-winged figure (Mephisto, played by Jannings) looming over a small town, now look more impressive and pristine than ever.
