Faust by Aleksandr Sokurov

A dream, a nightmare. The doctor, the beauty, the devil and a choice. A metaphysical scenery, the absolute victory of the beauty and of youth above all others temptations, the constant desire, the motion of souls that produce strong energies and concatenations of events. A world seen as a closed box full of turpitudes and imperfections, misery and diseases. That girl is the answer in order to escape from that terrible reality, to sell your soul is the choice in order to have her and her love.
