Faust who?

A film by Marco Maltauro (Casa di Goethe 2009)

Faust is depressed and in dispair. The bet with Mephistopheles seams to be the only solution. But then Faust disapears. Police starts its investigations. Who is Faust? One of the actors in the film (a prostitute, Faust has visited the gangland) says: “Goethe's book is not just a book, it is an entire world, there is everything in it, it is naughty, magic, poetry, it is a puppet theatre".
