Abstract

In this Oscar-winning Best Foreign Language Film, an actor strikes a Faustian bargain as the Nazis take control of Germany in the mid-1930s. Hendrik Höfgen (modeled on German actor Gustaf Gründgens) opts to collaborate with the Nazis as his wife, family, and friends flee Germany. He consciously overlooks the increasing horrors of Nazi Germany and the moral compromises he has to make to be successful in his career.
