Faust. The Tragedy: Part One

Heinrich Faust is looking back at the achievements in his life and comes to a depressing conclusion: As an actor he lacks deeper insight into the human soul and success in his career, and as a human being he is unable to savour life. He also has no friends and no family. In this desperate position he promises his soul to Mephistopheles, if he will be able to make him contented and to be freed from his disaffection. Mephistopheles takes Faust on a trip, entertains him with banal distractions, and involves him in the tragic amour with the young Margarete. This film offers a completely new look on Goethe's classic play. Slow and surprisingly surreal.
