Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Franz journeys to Vienna to apprentice at a tobacco shop where he meets Sigmund Freud, a regular customer. Over time the two very different men form a singular friendship. When Franz falls desperately in love with the music-hall dancer Anezka, he seeks advice from the renowned psychoanalyst, who admits that the female sex is as big a mystery to him as it is to Franz. As political and social conditions in Austria dramatically worsen with the Nazis' arrival in Vienna, Franz, Freud, and Anezka are swept into the maelstrom of events.

Critics

open_quote The film expertly captures the tensions in the Austrian capital on the eve of Hitler's takeover, and it also manages to be a vibrant coming-of-age story and an intriguing portrayal of Sigmund Freud, expertly portrayed by Bruno Ganz. close_quote Hollywood Reporter
