Barbara Albert (A/GER 2017)
Vienna 1777. In order to get her eyesight back, blind pianowunderkind Maria Theresia Paradis is entrusted to Franz Anton Mesmer, a doctor famous for his 'magnetic' treatments. Coming from a decadent nobility milieu the shy 18-year-old finds herself in a libertine household where she is free of conservative restraints. Illuminated by flat candlelights this costume drama lets main actress Maria Dragus shine with subtle facial expressions and a suggestive embodiment of her character. A performance you won't forget.
