RESTORED DELUXE EDITION

F.W. Murnau’s Masterpiece of German Silent Film

FAUST

starring Emil Jannings

Mobilizing the full resources of the Ufa Studios, F.W. Murnau (Nosferatu, Sunrise) orchestrated a colossal adaptation of Goethe’s FAUST that ranks alongside Fritz Lang’s Metropolis as the greatest achievement of the German silent cinema.

Gösta Ekman stars as the titular alchemist who, struggling with his faith amidst a devastating plague, is offered the power to cure and the gift of youth...in exchange for his soul.  As the diabolical Mephisto, Emil Jannings (The Last Laugh) delivers a performance of operatic scale and intensity, by turns charming, comical, and horrific.

This special Kino edition contains the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation’s meticulous restoration of the original German version of the film (with unique hand-painted intertitles), as well as a lengthier alternate cut prepared by the Ufa Studios in 1930.

SPECIAL FEATURES

• Two-DVD edition featuring the restored German version (with optional English subtitles) and the previous U.S. release version
• “The Language of Shadows: Faust,” a 53-minute documentary on the making of Murnau’s film
• New musical score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra in 5.1 Stereo Surround or 2.0 Stereo
• The lost screen test footage of Ernst Lubitsch’s abandoned 1923 production Marguerite and Faust.
• Image Gallery
• Essay by film historian Jan Christopher Horak
