Centrul Ceh, in colaborare cu Goethe Institut, prezinta joi, 10 martie, filmul Faust in cadrul proiectului ‘’No Silence, Please!’’. Publicul va putea experimenta atmosfera magica dintr-o sala de la inceputurile cinematografiei.
In perioada de inceput a cinematografiei, datorita conditiilor tehnice de realizare de productii cinematografice, prezentarea filmelor se facea fara a fi insotite de un sunet care sa faca personajele sa “vorbeasca”. Ulterior au fost introduse in sala pianul sau chiar orchestre pentru a acompania live filmele.

FAUST

Ultimul film german al lui Murnau, Faust, amesteca influente picturale precise, marile teme ale romantismului german si ale expresionismului si preocuparile atat tematice cat si estetice ale autorului.

Faust – Eine deutsche Volkssage, Germania, 1926, 85 min.
Regia: F. W. Murnau
Cu: Gosta Ekman, Emil Jannings si Camilla Horn

Faust este omul insetat de cunoasterea lucrurilor materiale, vesnic aflat in cautare a ceva nou, veșnic nefericit cu ce are, care ajunge sa facă un pact cu diavolul pentru a avea acces la cunoașterea absoluta, interzisa. Diavolul se ofera sa il slujeasca pe pamant, bineinteles in schimbul sufletului sau.

ENGLISH VERSION

FAUST
Murnau’s last German film draws on older traditions of the legendary tale of Faust as well as on Goethe’s classic version. God and Satan war over earth; to settle things, they wager on the soul of Faust, a learned and religious alchemist. During a plague, Faust despairs and burns his books after failing to stop death; Satan sends Mephisto to tempt Faust, first with insight into treating the plague and then with a day’s return to youth. Mephisto is clever, timing the end of this 24 hours as Faust embraces the beautiful Duchess of Parma. Faust trades his soul for youth. Some time later, he’s bored, and demands on Easter Sunday that Mephisto takes him home. Faust promptly sees and falls in love with the beautiful Gretchen, whose liaison with him brings her dishonor. Is there redemption? Who wins the wager?
