Old and burdened Faust sells his soul to the Devil for the exchange of youth and pleasures. He seduces Marguerite and is finally condemned to hell.
Director: Georges Méliès
Star: Georges Méliès
In this classic of silent cinema, the demon Mephisto (Emil Jannings) makes a bet with an archangel that a good man’s soul can be corrupted. Mephisto sets his sights on the thoughtful old alchemist Faust (Gösta Ekman), who is desperately trying to save his village from a plague. He is able to help the villagers, thanks to Mephisto, but further dealings with the devil lead Faust on a decadent downward spiral. Can he redeem his soul before it’s too late?
