Faust Photos

Movie Info

This European fantasy features excellent and surprisingly imaginative clay animation combined with live-action to tell the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan without the benefit of a lawyer. Initially, Faust does not rise to the bait presented by Mephistopheles' assistants who encode their offers in commuter-maps handed out at a Prague subway exit. Instead he accidently calls Mephistopheles himself. With the Devil's favorite minion, Faust agrees to sell his soul in exchange for 24 pleasure-filled years. The bargain is sealed, but Faust doesn't get what he bargained for. First he is turned into an actor, then he is turned into a puppet. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Marvelous grown-up animation with a grubby surrealist sensibility. The best screen treatment of this material to date.

This unique film can be appreciated for how beautiful it all is.

His Faust is a bit too detached to be truly disturbing or emotionally affecting.

Audience Reviews for Faust

Avant-garde animator Jan Svankmajer uses Claymation, puppet theater, stop-motion animation, special effects and live action to give the film a surrealistic look on the popular tale of a man who encounters a devil named Mephistopheles, with whom he makes a deal. Jan Svankmajer has again created a surreal work of art in Faust. Photobucket
