Emil Jannings glowers his way through the role of Mephistopholes, who offers the aging Faust Gosta Eckman an opportunity to relive his youth, the price being Faust's soul.
Though highly stylized, the film is unsettlingly realistic at times, especially during the execution of the unfortunate Gretchen. Even in old age, actress Camilla Horn could recall how close she came to genuine immolation when Murnau burned her at the stake. An American version of Faust had been planned earlier as a Mary Pickford vehicle, but Pickford's mother wanted no part of a film in which her darling daughter strangled her own baby.
The scenario for Faust touches lightly upon the previous retellings by Goethe and Marlowe, but is more heavily reliant on the paintings of Pietr Breughel. Hal Erickson, All-Movie Guide. Murnau's masterpiece; few films by any director can match it for the sweeping impact and beauty of its visuals or the power of its storytelling. Murnau approaches Goethe's tragedy of a man who learns all too well the price of his soul with appropriately broad dramatic strokes, and if the effect seems a bit over the top in the early reels, it hits with full melodramatic force at the end; the full, horrible impact of Faust's comeuppance is as disturbing today as it was in Gosta Ekman is fine as the luckless Faust and Emil Jannings is brilliant as Mephisto, the embodiment of cunning and evil.
And the camerawork by Carl Hoffman and production design by Robert Herlith and Walter Rohrig are nothing short of astounding, creating a brilliantly controlled and beautifully painterly visual sense that's the ideal backdrop for this fable. Anyone who thinks of silent films as sluggish and amateurish has obviously never seen Faust; the home video release on Kino compliments the film's striking visuals with a superb original score by the American composer Timothy Brock that's worthy of attention on its own merits. Mark Deming, All-Movie Guide. O ne of the most beautifully crafted films ever made.
Black-and-white cinematography was redefined in Faust : this is a film shot in darkness and light. Lotte Eisner's elegiac description sets the mood for Murnau's version of the Faust legend, starring Emil Jannings as the subtly mischievous Mephistopheles, and Swedish actor Gosta Ekman as a subtly homoerotic Faust: "This film starts with the most remarkable and poignant images the German chiaroscuro ever created.
The chaotic density of the opening shots, the light dawning in the mists, the rays beaming through the opaque air, are breathtaking No other director, not even Lang, ever succeeded in conjuring up the supernatural as masterfully as this. The entire town seems to be covered by the vast folds of a demon's cloak or is it a gigantic, lowering cloud?
Carl Hoffmann's camera gives the terrestrial part of this film extraordinary modeling and has the power of impregnating everything, down to the cloth of a garment, with diabolism The expressionistic medieval settings were beautifully lighted; strange apparations and weird camera tricks added a mystical atmosphere; low angles and ceilings were again employed. In the famous scene where Mephisto and the rejuvenated Faust fly through the air, the camera, placed on a roller coaster device, travelled over miles of miniature cities and country.
In fact, it was a conception and treatment of Mephisto which overbalanced the picture; the main theme of Faust was lost, as well as any genuine emotional quality T he devil claims the earth as his own. A dazzling archangel declares it is not and never will be so. The devil proposes a wager for possession of Earth.
If he can corrupt but one man, Faust, all the earth will be his. If he loses, he must leave back to Hell.

The devil hovers over Faust's village. Plague, death, panic, frustration, resignation. Faust is pious, but cannot call upon God successfully to lift the veil of death. In a moment of false revelation, Faust is tempted to call upon the devil. The wry devil manuevers Faust into accepting dark powers for a day.
Faust cures some of the plague, but is outcast when he cannot bring himself to touch a crucifix. Bison leather belt beige. Kangaroo leather belt burgundy. Cayman leather belt grey.

The story of Faust is woven into Dr. He produces works of increasing beauty to universal acclaim, even while physical illness begins to corrupt his body.
In , when presenting his final masterwork The Lamentation of Dr Faust , he confesses the pact he had made: madness and syphilis now overcome him, and he suffers a slow and total collapse until his death in Benet's version of the story centers on a New Hampshire farmer by the name of Jabez Stone who, plagued with unending bad luck, is approached by the devil under the name of Mr.

Scratch who offers him seven years of prosperity in exchange for his soul. Jabez Stone is eventually defended by Daniel Webster , a fictional version of the famous lawyer and orator, in front of a judge and jury of the damned, and his case is won. Murnau , director of the classic Nosferatu , directed a silent version of Faust that premiered in Murnau's film featured special effects that were remarkable for the era.
Many of these shots are impressive today. In one, Mephisto towers over a town, dark wings spread wide, as a fog rolls in bringing the plague. In another, an extended montage sequence shows Faust, mounted behind Mephisto, riding through the heavens, and the camera view, effectively swooping through quickly changing panoramic backgrounds, courses past snowy mountains, high promontories and cliffs, and waterfalls.
In the Murnau version of the tale, the aging bearded scholar and alchemist, now disillusioned—by a palpable failure of his antidotal, dark liquid in a phial, a supposed cure for victims in his plague-stricken town—Faust renounces his many years of hard travail and studies in alchemy.

We see this despair, watching him haul all his bound volumes by armloads onto a growing pyre; he intends to burn everything. But a wind comes, from offscreen, that turns over a few cabalistic leaves—from one of the books' pages, sheets not yet in flames, one and another just catching Faust's eye. Their words contain a prescription for how to invoke the dreadful dark forces. Following Faust heeding these recipes, we see him begin enacting the mystic protocols: on a hill, alone, summoning Mephisto, certain forces begin to convene, and Faust in a state of growing trepidation hesitates, and begins to withdraw; he flees along a winding, twisting pathway, returning to his study chambers.
At pauses along this retreat, though, he meets a reappearing figure. Each time, it doffs its hat—in a greeting, that is Mephisto, confronting him. Mephisto overcomes Faust's reluctance to sign a long binding pact with the invitation that Faust may try on these powers, just for one day, and without obligation to longer terms. It comes the end of that day, the sands of twenty-four hours having run out, after Faust's having been restored to youth and, helped by his servant Mephisto to steal a beautiful woman from her wedding feast, Faust is tempted so much that he agrees to sign a pact for eternity which is to say when, in due course, his time runs out.
Eventually Faust becomes bored with the pursuit of pleasure and returns home, where he falls in love with the beautiful and innocent Gretchen. His corruption enabled, or embodied, through the forms of Mephisto ultimately ruins both their lives, though there is still a chance for redemption in the end. Similarities to Goethe's Faust include the classic tale of a man who sold his soul to the Devil, the same Mephisto wagering with an angel to corrupt the soul of Faust, the plague sent by Mephisto on Faust's small town, and the familiar cliffhanger with Faust unable to find a cure for The Plague, and therefore turning to Mephisto, renouncing God, the angel, and science alike.

However, after several failed and funny attempts to do so, he discovers she already has a boyfriend, and realizes he sold his soul for nothing.

The Faust legend has been the basis for several major operas: for a more complete list, visit Works based on Faust. Psychodynamic therapy uses the idea of a Faustian bargain to explain defence mechanisms , usually rooted in childhood, that sacrifice elements of the self in favor of some form of psychical survival.
For the neurotic, abandoning one's genuine feeling self in favour of a false self more amenable to caretakers may offer a viable form of life, but at the expense of one's true emotions and affects.
