Mephisto

Directed by Istvan Szabo
Year: 1981
Running Time: 146 minutes
Country: Hungary
Language: German, Hungarian

The 1981 Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film MEPHISTO, by Hungarian master István Szabó, concerns a passionate but struggling actor (Klaus Maria Brandauer) who remains in Germany during the Nazi regime and reaps the rewards of this Faustian pact by finally achieving the stardom he has long craved. Sparkling new 4K restoration by the Hungarian Film Fund.

"There has been precious little incisive appraisal of the precise seductive allure of fascism, and certainly none to match that offered by Szabó's remarkable film."
- Paul Taylor, Time Out (London)
    
"This film is a work of art. The film transmits its messages so forcefully that no one can remain unaffected."
- Ingmar Bergman
 
"One of the greatest movie performances I've ever seen. A performance of electrifying power."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
 
"Magnificent and distinguished. It's more than a mercy, it's a coup."
- David Thomson
 
"Few have dared what Brandauer accomplishes: showing us a good actor responding to the same neurotic drive for the center of the stage, the immortalizing role. His is a great performance, nothing less."
- Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine 
 
"Mephisto is brilliant metaphorical filmmaking."
- Bruce McCabe, Boston Globe
 
"Possesses an inner momentum and the film as a whole, with its dynamic leading performance, has an energy reminiscent of the films of Andrzej Wajda." 
- David Shipman  
 
"A chillingly real experience."
- Joshua A. Guttman, The Knockturnal
 
"Mephisto excels at depicting the boiling-frog manner in which complacency allows extremism to take hold."
- Jake Cole, Spectrum Culture
 
"Director István Szabó navigates a swooning historical landscape that threatens to consume his central figure, who turns in one of the great screen performances of all time. Brandauer embodies the tortured artist through a wildly vivid range that careens from hammy, operatic full-body gestures to the most subtle changes of expression at eyeball-level."
- Pat Padua, Washington City Paper

Set in the lead up to WWI, Hungarian master István Szabó's Cannes Grand Jury-winning COLONEL REDL charts the rise of Alfred Redl to head of counter-intelligence of the Austro-Hungarian Army. His hidden homosexuality, however, is used against him by enemies of the state, putting both his professional standing and his country's security in dire straits. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 1985, the third of four such Academy Award nominations Szabó's films earned. Sparkling new 4k restoration by the Hungarian Film Fund.

"At the center is Klaus Maria Brandauer delivering a dazzling, virtuoso performance."
- The Times  
 
"Fascinating."
- David Denby, New York Magazine

Year: 1980
Running Time: 106 minutes

1980's CONFIDENCE was nominated for an Academy Award and Hungarian master István Szabó won Berlin's Silver Bear for Best Director.

Will they be able to maintain the illusion without giving in to their growing feelings for each other? Sparkling new 4K restoration by the Hungarian Film Fund.

"Arguably the best film directed by the most popular of post '60s Hungarian filmmakers, Confidence is a taut tale."  
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice

"The central performances are flawless."  
- Time Out 
 
"Subtle, haunting imagery, fine acting and directorial concern make this almost Kafkaesque film an absorbing drama."
- Variety

Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates virtual theaters for temporarily closed art house cinemas so they can offer their audiences the opportunity to see at home the films that would otherwise be playing on the big screen.

When the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the art house film industry became evident, we at Kino Lorber immediately thought about how we could help our independent theater partners across the country. We cannot release the kind of films we do without their support. So we wanted to find a way to work in partnership with them to help ensure that they will still be there after we all come out the other side. The Kino Marquee initiative offers a chance for these theaters to make money while their doors are closed.

Independent theaters need our support now more than ever. By buying a virtual “ticket” to watch this film on Kino Marquee, you’ll be directly supporting your local art house cinema. All revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater box office.

You can watch on your computer, phone, or tablet, or cast to your Google Chromecast or Smart TV. You can also download the Kino Now app for Roku or Apple TV (requires tvOS 9.0 or later) and watch the film there. See below for more detailed informatioin about the app options.

Very good question! If you’re landing on this page, we ask that you only rent the film if you are a customer of this theater. We are rapidly expanding the program to art house theaters in other cities, so we urge you to wait to watch the film when it is available locally and support the theater in your community. We also thank you for your cooperation in not sharing the link to this page beyond the community in which this theater is located. Let’s work together to keep all independent theaters healthy in this time of great uncertainty.

Request a local theater here.

To get your ticket, click the Screen button above. You’ll have to register for an account if you don’t already have one. After you’ve entered your payment information, your rental period will start immediately and last for five days.

Once you have purchased your ticket to the film on desktop or mobile, follow these steps to install the Kino Now app on your Apple TV (requires tvOS 9.0 or later). You will need to login using the same email address and password you just created.
