Faust

Still image from the film Faust
Drawn from no less than four versions of the Faustian tale (including Goethe, Christopher Marlowe and Czech folk theater), this adaptation brings the myth into modern Prague, where an ordinary man suddenly finds that he must play the role of Dr. Faustus. Nothing in this story is predictable, as the live actor is replaced occasionally by a wooden marionette, stage doors open into grassy fields full of ballerinas, and Mephisto is the twin of Faust himself. The absurdity possesses a distinctly Kafkaesque flavor, and we wonder whether Faust has any control over his fate. Czech language with English subtitles.
