Reviews
Starring Klaus Maria Brandauer, Karin Boyd, Rolf Hoppe

4K restoration! In 1930s Germany, an ambitious actor (Klaus Maria Brandauer, absolutely electrifying) abandons his revolutionary ideals and aligns himself with the Nazi cultural apparatus, rising to fame and fortune. But at what price comes his success? Winner of Best Foreign Language Film at the 54th Academy Awards, István Szabó’s Faustian saga is of a piece with Weimar tales like Cabaret, tracing the slippery slope from opportunism into corruption, collaboration, and atrocity.
