Storyline

Vienna, 1902: Alma Schindler meets Gustav Mahler. She beautiful, young, plays, and composes: music is her life. She becomes Mahler's lover, then he marries her, asking that she give up composing. She has two children, works as his assistant, does his books, saves him from debt, and feels stifled. In 1910, after the death of a child, she retreats to a spa where she falls in love with Walter Gropius. Will she go with him or stay with Mahler? She conducts an affair with the tempestuous Oskar Kokoschka and is stifled in another way. Then, she marries Gropius, who proves imperious. She leaves him for Franz Werfel: he finds her compositions and insists the public hear them. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

faithful wife... goes FULL unfaithful the cursed followed her daughter too.
2 August 2020 | by afterdarkpakSee all my reviews

The performance is nice, the plot is good , as its kinda based on true stories of artists. the movie actually tried to shows the passion n love of music , art of woman ALMA.

But in the name of love or passion,, no shame? no respect? no dignity ? no honour? means Cheating /adultery is ok when comes to love or feelings? thats crap.. and in the end , when it shows in caption.. " her daughter married 5 times" . means she also had affairs n broken marriages. the curse of adultery goes to next generation , always.
