    This shouldn't be too difficult if you know Eastern/Central European cinema...

    Correct!

    Famous face, the wooden stake, a boarded-up window. The other stills were somewhat misleading, and devoid of any faces that might have helped ID the film, although, for this film, all the rest of the actors were Italian, so probably only familiar to fans of Italian cinema.

    This Academy Award winner (by a Hungarian director) seems to be flying under the radar.

    Here’s a 3rd frame.

    Answer:

    Mephisto (1981) directed by István Szabó

    881FCA99-8CC9-469E-8128-D53013C1BEC2.jpeg

    There is a 1962 West German production with Gustav Gründgens. I haven’t seen this version but Gründgens’s performance is said to be the best. According to one reviewer, he makes Klaus Maria Brandauer look “about as convincing in the role as Charlton Heston playing Moses.”

    For anyone interested, here is an interesting article about this “Faust / Mephisto” story.
