Description

Faust, expiating in the depths of hell for the sins of his earthly life, is tormented by the regret of not having seen Paris. Being a good devil, Satan accedes to the desire of his subject, and both are transported in the middle of modern Babylon. Faust marvels at the beauties of the capital when while visiting the mysterious nocturnal Paris, he meets an unfortunate woman whose misery drives her to suicide. As she is about to throw herself into the dark water of the river, two pimps throw themselves on the desperate woman and drag her into a dive. Faust's heart is moved. Protected by his powerful friend, he manages to deliver the young woman from her persecutors and discovers that she is an honest and hardworking worker. Satan urges him in vain to continue his work of seduction. Faust contents himself with depositing in the humble dwelling a casket full of gold. Having thus redeemed his past fault by a good deed, Heaven opens its doors to him, while Satan, confounded, goes to hide his formidable anger in the depths of Hell.
