Old and burdened Faust sells his soul to the Devil for the exchange of youth and pleasures. He seduces Marguerite and is finally condemned to hell. In a public place in Constantinople at the corner of a bazaar, the executioner is seated upon a stone and is resting from his daily labors while eating a crust of bread. Suddenly there come In this spectacular free adaptation of the popular theatre play "La Biche au Bois", the valiant Prince Bel-Azor pursues a baleful old witch to her impregnable castle, to save the beautiful young Princess Azurine.

He falls asleep and sees a vision of himself as a youth, when he refused the water Christ asked of him; he plods on and runs into Satan who beats him with his staff; he makes his way through a frightful storm.
On and on he goes, forced to walk through time until the Second Coming. To the modern eye, this is obviously a trick film made with double exposure; and Melies, in his role as the Wandering Jew, is quite over the top as he wanders through a field of hard stones, having dreams and visions of Christ on his way to Calvary, the devil tormenting him and of the Mother of God. To a Frenchman of the era, who quite probably saw this film at a fairground -- a prime audience for Melies in this era -- it is simply and purely a movie of faith and a certain amount of anti-Semitism, too.
Still, for the time frame it is quite a beautiful, what with Melies ' carefully painted backgrounds lending a three-dimensional air to the film.
And for those of us who love Melies' work under any circumstances, it is a temptation to go back to the Europa Film Archives website and look at it again right now.
