MEPHISTO
1981, Kino Lorber, 144 min, West Germany/Hungary/Austria, Dir: István Szabó

An Academy Award winner for Best Foreign-Language Film, MEPHISTO concerns a passionate but struggling actor (Klaus Maria Brandauer) who remains in Germany during the Nazi regime and reaps the rewards of this Faustian pact by finally achieving the stardom he has long craved. “This film is a work of art. The film transmits its messages so forcefully that no one can remain unaffected.” - Ingmar Bergman.
