Critic Reviews for Mahler on the Couch
The scenes with Karl Markovics, as Freud, are the lingering appeal of this artfully composed film, framed with aesthetic care and scored with Mahler's music...
[An] eccentric and expressionistic reverie on love, loss, and the birth of modern marriage.
It's a decent addition to the modest list of films about the composer, but no substitute for Mahler, Ken Russell's 1974 comic-strip classic.
A funny title for a film that is as serious as psychosis, but Mahler never sounded better.
The film's visual and structural boldness only underlines the story's predictable trajectory and muddy characterizations.
Audience Reviews for Mahler on the Couch
Watching German films online. My German isn't great, so I don't get it all, but this one was ok. I'd lump it in as being on par with all those other classical musician movies. Kind of the same style as that "Immortal Beloved" film.
