Description: God and Satan war over earth; to settle things, they wager on the soul of Faust, a learned and prayerful alchemist. During a plague, Faust despairs and burns his books after failing to stop death; Satan sends Mephisto to tempt Faust, first with insight into treating the plague and then with a day's return to youth. Mephisto is clever, timing the end of this 24 hours as Faust embraces the beautiful Duchess of Parma. Faust trades his soul for youth. Some time later, he's bored, and demands on Easter Sunday that Mephisto take him home. Faust promptly sees and falls in love with the beautiful Gretchen, whose liaison with him brings ... (more)

"5.4. Jumala uhoaa saatanalle, ettei taivaallisten voimien lojaali seuraaja hylkää uskoaan pahimmallakaan hetkellä. Vanha vihtahousu sitten jättää päivätyönsä konttorilla kiusatakseen Faust-parkaa ja työntämällä päätänsä sisään ihmisten ikkunoista tarjotakseen heille vähän helvettiä. Saatanan pukeutuminen on kuin hän olisi käynyt varastamassa kaapunsa suoraan LaVeyn garderoobista. Irvokkaan koominen tyyli kuvata saatanaa kiusoittelevana pellenä on oikeastaan aika pirun "

" Date: 10/7/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: This movie is great from start to finish. The movie is a great story of an eternal struggle of good vs. evil and the inter lust & greed inside of humans. The special effects are amazing for a 92-year-old movie and the camera work is brilliant. I also love the great use of fog and shadows in the movie. I feel like the movie was a bit slow at first, but I still love this movie. I highly recommended this film. "

"Faustin tarina alkaa, kun arkkienkeli Mikael ja Paholainen lyövät vetoa maailman herruutta vastaan pystyisikö jälkimmäinen houkuttelemaan kenet tahansa hyveellisen kristityn pimeän puolen palvelukseen. Ensitöikseen paholainen lähettää hyveellisen tohtori Faustin kotikylään tuhoisan ruton, jota viisas Faustkaan ei kykene hoitamaan. Koska Jumala on yllättäen lakannut vastaamasta ihmisten rukouksiin, päättää Faust turvautua sielunvihollisen konsteihin... Tämän elokuvan tekoaika"

" The definitive "Faust" adaptation. The movie is full of iconic imagery, great expressionist scenes and great acting especially from Gösta Ekman as Faust and Emil Jannings as Mephisto himself. Camilla Horn also impresses in the female part. The giant wings of the Angel of Darkness embracing the city is a impressive unforgettable image. F.W. Murnau has a tight grip on both editing, direction and the actors as this is one of the most satisfying silent movies I have seen. "
