The 1981 Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film Mephisto by Hungarian master István Szabó, concerns a passionate but struggling actor (Klaus Maria Brandauer) who remains in Germany during the Nazi regime and reaps the rewards of this Faustian pact by finally achieving the stardom he has long craved. With a sparkling new 4K restoration by the Hungarian Film Fund, this extraordinary film (beloved by Ingmar Bergman) has never looked better, or felt more relevant.
