Faust

Winner of the Golden Lion at Venice in 2012. From one of Russia’s greatest filmmakers comes a unique interpretation of Goethe’s classic tale of a man who sells his soul to the Devil. A coda to the director’s fictional profiles of three tyrants (‘Hitler in Moloch’, ‘Stalin in Taurus’ and ‘Hirohito in The Sun’), Sokurov’s ‘Faust’ explores mankind’s propensity for corruption in the face of power and sexual gratification. As with all the director’s films, the result is a work of ravishing beauty.
