Faust (Alexander Sokurov)
Tuesday 20 March 2012, 7pm
This fairly odd movie is a stirring journey to the depth of a soul and carnality, full of poetic and harsh shots. It’s considered a strong reference to many human weaknesses and faults and rediscovering Faust, as a deep mortal story. Sokurov was loosely inspired by Goethe’s story, but the famous myth about soul-selling to the devil is being radically reinterpreted. Faust is a thinker and a rebel, but on the other hand, he’s also an anonymous person made of flesh and bones, who is controlled by inner greed and lust instincts.
After the motion pictures Moloch (about Hitler), Taurus (about Lenin) and The Sun (emperor Hirohito), Faust is a closure of Sokurov’s tetralogy. The film earned the Golden Lion prize in the “best motion picture” category at IFF 2011 in Venice.
