"A Small Miracle." - Bill Hoffmann, New York Post

Jan Svankmajer's long awaited follow-up to his acclaimed "Alice" is an equally astounding version of the myth of Dr. Faustus. Merging live action with stop motion and claymation animation, Svankmajer has created an unsettling universe presided over by diabolic life-size marionettes and haunted by skulking human messengers from hell.
Svankmajer's Faust (movingly incarnated by one of the Czech Republic's finest actors, Peter Cape) is an ordinary, inquisitive everyman who, upon exiting a Prague subway station, is handed a map that draws him to his doom. Led to an abandoned theater, he finds a copy of Goethe's Faust, begins to read aloud, and unwittingly summons up a devil who offers him everything his heart desires in return for his soul. With breathtaking rapidity, Faust's journey takes him to the tops of mountains, drops him in the middle of lakes and sends him out onto the unsuspecting streets of Prague. Peopled with shape-changing demons and puppet-versions of Goethe's characters, Svankmajer's tour-de-force is alternately hilarious and shocking, always unique, and ultimately unforgettable.
