Synopsis

Alexander Sokurov's daring interpretation of Goethe’s classic tale is a startling, mesmerising and hallucinatory descent into the dark recesses of the human psyche. Dr Faust is a restless scholar, bored and disgusted by the filthy, mundane and money-driven society he inhabits. But after meeting a mysterious moneylender and a beautiful young girl his fate is irrevocably altered, sending him on a spiralling path of lust, greed and the will to power. Through intense, dreamlike camerawork, Sokurov tackles the existential dilemmas of a chaotically surreal world in this award-winning, visionary tour de force.
