Abstract:

This is the best known production of the pre-war period, borrowing freely from the romantic fantasies of E.T.A. Hoffmann, from the Faust legend and from Poe's story William Wilson. The story concerns a poor student, Baldwin, who enters into a contract with the sorcerer, Scapinelli, an incarnation of the Devil. Scapinelli promises Baldwin an advantageous marriage and great wealth on the condition that he, Scapinelli, be given the student's mirror reflection. 'The Student of Prague already exhibits that preoccupation with setting and atmosphere which was to be characteristic of the entire German cinema' (Lotte Eisner).
