Based on: The German folk tale/The play by Goethe/The book by Yuri Arabov
Story: Aleksandr Sokurov directs this German-language adaptation of the classic tale about a man who sells his soul to the Devil. The story, woven into the fabric of Western culture thanks to the influential theatrical adaptations by playwrights Christopher Marlowe and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, follows a scientist, Faust (Johannes Zeiler), in search of knowledge. However, while in Goethe's version Faust is in search of the secrets of the universe, Sokurov's scientist has far more base motives. Obsessed with the beautiful Margarete (Isolda Dychauk), Faust makes a deal with the Devil's representative on Earth, the Moneylender (Anton Adasinsky), to gain the secrets that will win Margarete's heart, but what price will the Moneylender extract in return?
