Der Vampir auf der Couch Programme 2018

by David Ruehm Special Screenings

Vienna, 1930: Dr. Sigmund Freud has a new patient. Count Geza von Közsnöm, a man in his prime, has come to Vienna with his wife Elsa to be treated by the famous professor. He is tired of his life, but most of all, he has had enough of his wife and her constant whining over her missing reflection. Not knowing that the Count and his wife are vampires, Freud presents his mysterious patients to the young painter Viktor, who is to paint a portrait of Elsa. When the Count meets Lucy, Viktor’s headstrong girlfriend, it hits him like a hammer: His depression suddenly lifts when he recognises in the young woman the love of his life – and he is determined to make her an undead… A vampire-comedy based on Bram Stoker's ‘Dracula’.
