Jan vankmajer's film Faust was made in the Czech Republic in 1994. It merges live-action footage with stop-motion footage and includes imaginative puppetry and claymation. The Faust character is played by Petr epek. The film was produced by Jaromr Kallista. Although the film does not serve to accurately portray the Faustus legend, it utilizes the legend in a rather imaginative way, borrowing and blending elements from the story as told by Goethe and Christopher Marlowe with traditional folk renditions. It has a distinctly Modernist, Absurdist, Kafkaesque feel, especially with the setting in Prague. The tone is dark but humorous. The voices in the English version were provided by Andrew Sachs. The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.
