Dreams are desires without courage - Arthur Schnitzler's 150th birthday

Träume sind Begierden ohne Mut - Arthur Schnitzlers 150. Geburtstag

This documentary shows the life and work of Arthur Schnitzler, the greatest German-language writer of the early 20th Century. Like no one else, Schnitzler knew how to describe this special time of fin de siècle change. Approximately at the same time as his contemporary Sigmund Freud in psychoanalysis, Arthur Schnitzler addresses the taboos of sexuality and death. The critical approach to military and state, then unusual among intellectuals, was vehemently opposed. The life of the trained physician is documented in a large collection of diaries and letters and offers a perfect setting for the portrait of this extraordinary man and artist. In a documentary these two lines are narrated at the actual locations in Vienna and Reichenau and complemented by excerpts from plays and films.
