Director Tomaž Pandur again deals with one of the greatest European myths. Although the story of Faust is based on the medieval legend about a man who sells his soul to the devil, it actually expresses the feeling of alienation of modern man and his need to understand himself and the world in the wider context of the universe.
Using an alchemical process, Pandur transposes the Faustian legend into the intellectual and emotional atmosphere of today and constructs his own poetics and truth. Together with the eternal struggle against the all-pervading evil, he emphasises the infinite longing for everything inaccessible or unattainable: family, love, youth, beauty.
Entry into the realm of magic, into landscapes of cosmic spheres, momentarily enables Faust to live on and find fulfilment, love, authority, and power, but the blood-signed contract with Mephisto – or oneself – finally brings him back to his solitude, old age, and the brevity of life.
