MAHLER ON THE COUCH (Mahler auf der Couch)
Dir. Percy & Felix Adlon, Germany, 2010, 98 min. German with English subtitles
Percy Adllon, who delighted audiences with Bagdad Café and Sugarbaby, is back in rare form with Mahler on the Couch.
This passionate and witty film is a portrait of the fascinating, fevered and doomed marriage beween Gustav Mahler and wife Alma.
Adlon tells their story through the seriocomic lense of Sigmund Freud, whom the freaked-out Mahler consults in Amsterdam after discovering that Alma has had an affair with the young architect Walter Gropius
”Moving, surprisingly funny, and filled with Mahler’s sublime music, Adlon’s movie is a sensory feast." (LAFILMFEST)
Q and A with filmmaker PERCY ADLON after the screening!
