To come straight to the point. It was a film about a drama, that is to say the actions can be watched on a stage. In this filmed drama I have watched Faust I.

I guess it is not possible to see such old dramas on a stage out of a school. I would love to see the weavers by Gerhardt Hauptmann, the physicists by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Woyzeck by Gerog Büchner or waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.

the Beckett is regularly staged in this country. the Büchner less often:

No wonder that Woyzeck is not so often staged in Britain like Waiting for Godot, as Woyzeck is a German drama. But I'm a little bit surprised that Büchner's name is known in Britian. I would not have thought that he is so popular outside of Germany.

he is known mainly due to the opera Wozzeck based on the book. this is regularly performed at places like Covent Garden.

Yeah, there were not so many dramas which was written by Büchner, three to be exact. He has had a short life, died at 24. But in my opinion this drama Woyzeck can be counted as one of the most important one in social criticism.
