Review by anonymous (posted on 1-Sep-2006)
This film dramatizes the early
part of this century revolving around the relatiionship between Alma
Schindler who eventually married the great Viennese conductor and more
importantly, the composer of 10 symphonies and numerous other
works,Gustav Mahler. Along with her married life, Alma also had
numerous fascinating affairs during and after her short marriage to
Mahler as Mahler died in 1911. Beresford as director brings the
audience along within the subtle pyschological relations between Alma
and Gustav and as well, her relationship with the great Expressionist
painter, Kokoschka who directly competed for Alma's affection with
Gustav. The film is beautiful to look at, to enjoy the acting and
storyline and filled with wonderous paint. The title of the film is
based upon Kokoschka's masterpiece of the same name which is of Alma.
Art and artists can be hot stuff!
