Born 1861, Lou Andreas Salomé shuns traditions in pursuit of intellectual perfection, inflaming the hearts and minds of the early 19th Century’s greatest thinkers including Friedrich Nietzsche, the poet Rainer Marie Rilke and Sigmund Freud.


Lou Andreas-Salomé, the woman who enraptured 19th century Europe’s greatest minds, recounts her life to Ernst Pfeiffer in this German film directed by Cordula Kablitz-Post. A published novelist, poet and essayist, Salomé’s desire to live a life free from convention scandalized society but spurred genius and passion in others, including Friedrich Nietzsche, Paul Rée and her lover, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Under the tutelage of Sigmund Freud, she became the first female psychoanalyst.


Critic Quotes:

“…an intriguing look at how a Russian-born novelist, poet and avowed feminist became, reportedly, the first female psychoanalyst.” – LA Times

“An involving portrait of a feminist trailblazer.” – The Hollywood Reporter
