Intriguing study of an obsession
30 April 2000 | by silvius-2See all my reviews

The 'strange affliction' is Bruckner's obsession with numbers. He counts everything around him ceaselessly and has been packed off to a late 19th century sanatorium for a treatment of cold baths and TLC. Catherine Neilson is totally delicious as the nurse and I am totally in love with her. What has happened to her? her IMDB filmography stops in 1993. The inimitable Ken Russell has a talent for finding the most gorgeous women (if you exclude Glenda Jackson) - think of Amanda Donohoe in Lair of the White Worm. Bruckner is one of the great composers and the soundtrack, featuring his symphonies, string quintet and Te Deum is an inspiration. Forget Mahler. This is a beautiful film and very moving.
