Russian director Sokurov’s Faust is the final part of a tetralogy looking at history and its leading characters, as well as totalitarian ideas. Loosely based on Goethe’s literary masterpiece, it sets the original characters Faust, Margaret and Mephistopheles in 19th century Europe. The film nevertheless examines some modern issues, such as totalitarianism, consumerism and the consequence of losing touch with the non-material dimension of being.
