I don’t have much to say about this film. It’s a Faustian tale about an actor who effectively sells his soul to the Nazis in order to become a great actor. Although the film is Hungarian it’s in German and takes place in Germany. The style of the film reminded me of Fassbinder, Visconti’s The Damned, and Fellini’s portrayals of Fascism. However, there’s nothing special about this film. It’s middle of road.
