Faust: Eine deutsche Volkssage (original German title)

By F.W. Murnau


Faust is a righteous elderly alchemist, but he stumbles upon a book that promises unimaginable power, achievable by a pact with the Devil.
Little does Faust know, that his soul is tested in a game of bet between God and the Devil, and the winner will have dominion over Earth.
