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!
