Storyline

Vienna 1932. One evening Sigmund Freud finds a new patient on his couch. A mysterious Count, burdened by the weight his great existential secret, haunted by the death of a lover 500 years in the past and tired of his eternally long life with his wife. What Freud does not know is that the patient is a vampire. The vain Countess incessantly complains about not being able to look at herself in a mirror, the count tells the professor. Unaware of the fact that the count and his wife are vampires, Freud introduces his mysterious patient to a young painter, Viktor, who paints portraits that express more than a mirror ever could. While visiting the painter, the count takes an instant shine to Viktor's girlfriend Lucy - more so than Viktor and the countess would like. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Translating well(?)
6 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Some things are not translating well and I'm not sure how this will play with audiences who're not familiar with the German/Austrian language. It can be a lot of fun, if you get into the mood. It's slapstick, but it's also a lot of wordplay. I don't think it gets too silly, but it's not like it's high class humor.

The acting is spot on, especially because everything is played straight, the characters are not comical or sketchy in a one dimensional way. They have character and they have issues. And all that put together produce situations that become great comedy. Watching it with company elevates the whole thing of course, and you shouldn't have an aversion towards horror movies (on the contrary you should have an open mind towards them)
