JOHANNES ZEILER

Johannes Zeiler's greatest success so far was his brilliant depiction of Doctor Faust in Alexander Sokurov‘s multiple award-winning adaptation of the classic. Following his role in REVANCHE, he is now appearing for a second time in a film by Götz Spielmann. In OCTOBER NOVEMBER he plays Verena‘s husband, Michael.
