Film Details


Russia | 2011 | Alexander Sokurov


Winner of the top prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival (where jury president Darren Aronofsky hailed it as a film that can "change you forever"), FAUST is an eccentric, visually stunning, phantasmagoric version of the famous legend, about a man who seeks enlightenment but sells his soul to the devil to win a beautiful young woman. This new film from the director of Russian Ark concludes Sokurov's "Men of Power" tetralogy. (Earlier films focused on Hitler, Lenin, and Hirohito.) With Hanna Schygulla; cinematography by Bruno Delbonnel (Amélie, Inside Llewyn Davis). “Simply wondrous. Like so many Bruegels, Boschs, Vermeers, and Rembrandts come to life...So lush, so exhilarating." -Film Comment.
