The 18th-century Viennese medical establishment is threatened by the radical yet successful healing methods of Austrian physician Franz Anton Mesmer. Blind pianist Maria Theresa Paradies, daughter of a well-to-do businessman, becomes Mesmer's patient after he calms her seizure at a concert. As the two are drawn into an intimate relationship, the situation is used as an excuse to banish Mesmer from Vienna. Undaunted, he moves on, becoming a court favorite in Paris. Written by

Mesmer is one of the GREATEST movies I've EVER seen! Alan Rickman is SO GREAT IN IT and did a FABULOUS JOB portraying Dr. Mesmer! And of course Alan looks SO HOT in that movie. I love the long hair and his outfit. But best of all, that voice fit the character PERFECTLY. Personally, what I love about Alan's portrayal of Mesmer is that he adds so much power and sensuality to his acting. Aside from Alan stealing the show, the movie itself is absolutely BRILLIANT! I promise you, once you see this move, YOU WILL INSTANTLY FALL IN LOVE WITH IT!! If you haven't seen this movie, (and you're a Rickmaniac) I suggest you do it NOW! You'll be glad you did!
