The lavish retelling of the Faust legend based on Goethe and Marlowe employed the best talents of the German industry - masterly sets were closely related to the camerawork to avoid staginess. Opening with the meeting of Faust and Mephistophicles at night and concluding with the dominance of white, the obverse of Expressionism; in between, an extraordinary aerial flight and raffish comedy in 'a tragic-comic seesaw'. Faust made considerable impact outside Germany but was met with indifference at home. The critics remain divided. Faust is dismissed, for example, as a falsely monumental display of artifice (Kracauer) but acclaimed by Lotte Eisner as 'a high point in German chiaroscuro' and by Weinberg as 'a vast fresco of light and shadow without parallel on the screen'
