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 opts to collaborate with Nazis as his wife, family, and friends flee Germany. He consciously overlooks the increasing horrors of Nazi Germany and his own moral compromises as his star rises.
