This European fantasy features excellent and surprisingly imaginative clay animation combined with live-action to tell the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan without the benefit of a lawyer. Initially, Faust does not rise to the bait presented by Mephistopheles' assistants who encode their offers in commuter-maps handed out at a Prague subway exit. Instead he accidently calls Mephistopheles himself. With the Devil's favorite minion, Faust agrees to sell his soul in exchange for 24 pleasure-filled years. The bargain is sealed, but Faust doesn't get what he bargained for. First he is turned into an actor, then he is turned into a puppet. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

Goethe + Marlow + Svankmajer = chilly fun for you! Life size (anatomically correct) marionettes? Talking to demons that have your own face? Claymation, too? All bases covered. Enjoy what only Svankmajer can provide!
