Winner of the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1982, "Mephisto" is a remarkable and chilling portrait of one man's descent into moral corruption. As the Nazis rise to power, German actor Hendrik Hoefgen (Brandauer) faces a stark choice: political compliance or professional outer darkness. So eager is Hoefgen for applause that he opts for the former and becomes a star of the Nazi propaganda machine. But in pre-World War II Germany, there is a terrible price to pay for selling one's soul to the devil.
