Full description

A free interpretation of the Faust legend by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Faust is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment but he becomes obsessed with the lovely Magarethe and eventually sells his soul to the Devil, also known as the Moneylender, so that he may possess her. Comic, cosmic, painterly and stunningly beautiful scenes abound as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey that ends in Hell itself.
