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

Voulez-vous couches avec... WOW!
25 June 2018 | by smaojb-97382See all my reviews

Comedy Gold in any language! I loved it. I have a passing familiarity with German, so I was mostly reliant on the subtitles for context and the actors for subtext. That sort of works out well anyway, because that's usually the way it goes with most films and in real life, too.
