Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple's bond of love is severely tested.
A married couple are faced with a difficult decision - to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.
A teacher lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son's custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.
Thomas Bo Larsen,
The decors are beautiful, but the acting is horrible. I simply do not understand why the people interact with each other in this manner. They walk like there's no room to move. (You'll understand it when you see it.) Every time a conversation occurs (constantly)it is disrupted by background noise, with only one purpose, to annoy the viewer. Everybody who has read Goethe's Faust will be shocked. This adaptation does not even come close.
I love movies, I truly do. Even when I don't like a movie I can still understand the appeal. But not with Faust. This was the first time I walked out of the cinema during a film.
