Faust – Eine deutsche Volkssage

Directed by F.W. Murnau
Germany, 1926
Fantasy, Horror, Drama
  • Silent
  • English


God and Satan war over earth; to settle things, they wager on the soul of Faust, a learned and prayerful alchemist.

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 masterpiece still dazzles—and is now in a beautiful new HD restoration that does justice to its black magic.
