Russian Ark director Aleksandr Sokurov here takes on Goethe's influential 19th-century play, telling the unsettling story of a restless anatomist (Johannes Zeiler) who grows obsessed with a beautiful woman (Isolda Dychauk). His hunger for her so tempts him that he makes a desperate bargain with a mysterious moneylender (Anton Adasinsky) who claims to guarantee results; the only cost is his eternal soul. With Georg Friedrich, Hanna Schygulla. 140 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: German; Subtitles: English. In German with English subtitles.
