Lou Andreas-Salomé: The Audacity to Be Free Reviews

  • Apr 10, 2018

    Before seeing this film, I knew about Lou Andreas-Salomé's connection with Nietzsche, Rilke and Freud but never understood what an important figure she was in her own right. Cordula Kablitz-Post tells her story with impressive cinematic freedom, giving it a powerful emotional charge. This is one of the few biopics I've seen that might actually have pleased its subject. Warmly recommended.
