Released as a Dual format August 2014. 

Synopsis: 

Murnau's last German film features astonishing photography, magnificent art direction, and special effects which retain the power to amaze. Freed from the constraints of psychological narrative, Murnau s mastery of cinematic technique places Faust, eine deutsche Volkssage [Faust: A German Folktale] at the pinnacle of the silent era, its barrage of visceral and apocryphal imagery contrasting with the simplicity and directness of its spiritual theme. In collaboration with the screenwriter Hans Kyser, Murnau fused Faust s script from German folk legend and the works of Goethe, Gounod, and Marlowe (particularly using the latter s tone). Faust s tale is a classic one of a man who sells his soul to the devil. In an attempt to gain control of the Earth, Mephisto (Emil Jannings) wagers an angel (Werner Fuetterer) that he can corrupt the soul of the elderly professor Faust (Gosta Ekman). As the Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride demonically through the sky, Mephisto towers over Faust s hometown unleashing a plague that spreads amongst its inhabitants. Faust, unable to find a cure for the citizens who are dropping dead around him, renounces both God and science invoking the aid of Satan through a mysterious book that he chances across. Murnau, a perfectionist, shot multiple takes of each scene with only prime takes making the final German domestic cut of Faust. Only the prints made for export outside Germany were seen until recent times; indeed this version was at one time thought to be the only version (it used discarded takes, errors, less impressive special effects, and human stand-ins for real animals). Using the nitrate duplicate negatives printed by UFA in 1926 (and an array of international sources) Murnau s favoured domestic German version of Faust has now been meticulously reconstructed by Luciano Berriatua for Filmoteca Espanola from which this newly restored transfer is sourced. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to be able to present the original German domestic cut of Faust for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. 

Special Features:

  • Gorgeous 1080p transfer of the domestic German print, with original German intertitles and optional English subtitles
  • Full-length audio commentary by critics David Ehrenstein and Bill Krohn
  • A 20-minute video piece with critic Tony Rayns discussing the film
  • 40-PAGE BOOKLET with an essay by Peter Spooner, writing on the film by Éric Rohmer, and rare archival imagery

Incredible for it's time

Has been on my "to watch" list for a long time and was so pleased MoS released this one in all it's Blu-ray glory.

Saw this for the first time a few days back and was gobsmacked at some of the effects. Truly amazing for it's time. Exceeded all expectations.

Purchased this painlessly through the new website. Super quick delivery as always.

Can't wait to order the upcoming releases!

Beautiful job by Eureka

I recently bought this, really on the strength of Murnau's other work, since I'd heard of this version but never seen it.  I'm quite familiar with Goethe's play, and the story intrigues me;  although this turned out to have relatively little in common with Goethe's telling of the story, I thoroughly enjoyed Murnau's and Kyser's version in its own right.  Murnau's screen language Is often visually amazing, but the film is also entertaining as a narrative.  And it almost goes without saying that Eureka has done a brilliant job with both the transfer and its presentation.

All in all, a very happy purchase.

which version?

What advice would you guys give to a first time viewer? Domestic or international cut?

Domestic...

Hello guys, I've bought the

Hello guys, I've bought the dual format edition of this masterpiece. Did any of you buy it too? I have a question to ask about the dvd version included in the box

I bought it : what is the question?

Hi, twoems!

I bought it and the Masterpiece on this edition (for me) is the Best!

What is your question?

Hey Rafely, I have a doubt

Hey Rafely, I have a doubt about the quality of the dvd (domestic version) included in this edition. Maybe it is only my disc, I don't know, but have you tried to watch the film on this dvd? It seems that the  video quality is quite bad: I played on my full HD tv, and the edges of the texts and the figures are pixelated, like there was a bad encoding. I have many old films on dvd, but this is the first time I see such a thing. It's quite evident on the titles. I was wondering if other people found the same flaw on the dvd.

Suggest

you talk to the good folks at Eureka, nut doesn't sound right - suggest yoy ask for a replacement from whom ever you bought it from.

done

I already asked to eureka people about it. At first they tried to say it's normal for dvd to look that way on a HD TV (although I've never seen such a thing on my tv, only on youtube). But then when I sent them some screenshots ...they ignored me. In Italy we say that things that shine are not always made of gold. Bye guys
