Mahler on the Couch (Mahler auf der Couch)
A Film By Percy Adlon and Felix Adlon

Austria/Germany, 2010, 100 minutes, color, German with English subtitles

"Very witty and erotic...Percy Adlon is up to old tricks in this, delightful, artistically vigorous and occasionally loony fantasia about Vienna's cultural elite 100 years ago." --The Hollywood Reporter

This exuberant imagining of the real-life marriage of Gustav Mahler (Johannes Silberschneider) and his tempestuous wife Alma Schindler Mahler (the luminous Barbara Romaner) is a sensory feast of art, sex and celebrity in fin-de-siècle Vienna. Chafing under her agreement to give up her own musical ambitions, Alma seeks passion in the arms of the young, dashing architect Walter Gropius, which sends a tormented Mahler to Sigmund Freud for consultation. "Cameos" by Gustav Klimt and Max Burckhard. Moving and funny (the sessions with Freud are sly gems) the film is filled with Mahler's sublime music conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen. Based on a true story. Directed by Percy Adlon (Bagdad Café) and his son Felix Adlon.
