||Synopsis: 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 <[email protected]>

I watched this bit of eye candy in the hope that the story of Alma Schindler
Mahler Gropius Werfel would unfold and the world could see a portrait of a
daring, talented woman who was indeed liberated in nearly every sense of the
word. Mahler is one of one of my favorite composers and I became fascinated
with Alma Schindler, believe it or not, from a parody sung by Tom Lehrer.
However, since that time, many, many years ago, I've managed to read several
excellent biographies of Mahler as well as Alma Schindler's autobiography,
which leads me to comment on this film.
Sadly, this film disappoints. It is a beautiful piece of work, with
darkness wrought from bright colors, ala Bergman's Cries and Whispers, and
with wonderful costumes. But, as the other reviews herein note, the script
is weak and Sarah Wynter's performance is spotty. Indeed, the two male
stars, Jonathon Pryce as Mahler and Vincent Perez as the artist, Oskar
Kokoschka outshine Wynter's tentative characterization of Alma. Perez is
especially bright, exuding passion and artistic madness, as biographer's
have depicted the painter, a pioneer in early 20th Century expressionism.
Peter Verhoeven as Gropius and Gregor Seberg as Werfel seem to get ground up
and we're left wondering why they were written into the script...in spite of
the fact, each played a significant role in the life of Alma Schindler
Mahler Gropius Werfel. Too bad, they are underutilized. And, to continue
slamming the script, they are badly depicted. Gropius, the great
architectural innovator of the Bauhaus was hardly the foppish Mama's boy
shown in the film. And, the passionate, multi-talented Franz Werfel, author
of Song of Berndadette and Forty Days at Musa Dagh, was hardly the clowning
caricature presented in the film. Even the solid performance of Welsh
veteran Jonathon Pryce is led astray. The driven, passionate and often
neurotic Mahler, compulsively washing his hands 12 times a day was not the
staid, stoic older man shown in this film.
So, alas, the great subject matter has been neglected. What results is
not-a-bad movie about a fascinating woman that with a bit more research,
better script, and a different leading lady could have been excellent,
really excellent film.
