Der Student von Prag 1913
This 2-disc DVD presents the reconstructed and restored version of The Student of Prague, one of the first German 'art films'.
The Student of Prague is a twist on the legend of Faust (also filmed in Germany in 1926), taking the theme of doppelgangers from Edgar Allen Poe's story, 'William Wilson', and set in the 19th century. Balduin, a poor student, falls for a wealthy heiress. But he has no hope of marrying her without making a name for himself. He's enticed by a mysterious sorcerer to make a bargain with Satan. He becomes very wealthy, but of course there's a catch...
The story of Balduin, the student who makes a pact with the devil, takes a Romantic motif from German literature and establishes the fantastic genre in German silent film, which would later be continued by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, Fritz Lang, and others.
