  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database

Czech surrealist Svankmajer takes a loose adaptation of the old Faust legend, in which a man sells his soul to the devil, and blends it with live action, claymation, puppet theatre, stop-motion animation and special effects. The result is a film as far from Disney as you can get - animation for both the mind and the eye.
