Faust

Winner of the Golden Lion (Best Film) at Venice Film Festival 2011. Based on the Faust legend, this twisted German tragedy tells the tale of a man who receives knowledge from the devil in exchange for his soul.

"Sokurov’s Faust is not a film adaptation of Goethe’s tragedy in the usual sense, but a reading of what remains between the lines. What is the colour of a world that gives rise to colossal ideas? What does it smell like? It is stuffy in Faust’s world: earthshaking plans are born in the cramped space where he scurries about. He is a thinker, a mouthpiece for ideas, a transmitter of words, a schemer, a daydreamer." (Venice Film Festival)

This concludes director Aleksandr Sokurov’s 'Tetralogy of Power', following Molokh, Taurus and The Sun.

Winner of the Golden Lion, Venice Film Festival 2011.
