Jan Švankmajer's film Faust was made in the Czech Republic (a part of the former Czechoslovakia) in 1994. It merges live-action footage with stop-motion footage and includes imaginative puppetry and claymation. Faust is portrayed by Petr Čepek. The film was produced by Jaromír 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. ...more on Wikipedia about "Faust (1994 film)"
