I haven’t done anything. What can I do? I’m only an ordinary actor’.
Theatre, propaganda, the demise of a nation. As the Nazis come to power, an actor sells his soul, and must face the consequences. Mephisto is a remarkable and chilling portrait of one man’s descent into moral corruption.
Based on the novel by Klaus Mann
