The common man is lured by the map into an unusual puppet theater and discovered in the staging of a Faustian legend.
Jan Schwankmeier Authors:
Christian Dietrich Grabe (novel), Christopher Marlov (play) A very free adaptation of Marlowe’s “Doctor Faust”, Goethe’s “Faust” and several other treatments of an old legend about a man who sold his soul to the devil. Swankmeyer’s Faust is an indescribable man who, after being drawn into a sinister puppet theater by a strange card, sinks into an indescribably strange version of the play, in which he mixes live actors, an animated clay model and a giant doll. .
