Plot Outline:

The classic story brought to life by F.W. Murnau as God and Satan battle for the souls of earth, they wager on one man's soul: Faust. Mephisto is sent to corrupt the learned man's soul - as a plague ravages his town, Faust searches for a cure in vain - but Mephisto arrives with insight into a cure and later tempts him with youth. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

Overall, a fascinating silent German film - F. W. Murnau is probably best known for Nosferatu, but I would say this is just as noteworthy - the early opening scene of the devil blocking out the sun and spreading the plague is stunning and the movie has a good flow as it explores the classic good vs. evil dichotomy. A good choice for fans of early cinema.
