Irvin Yalom: "When Nietzsche Wept"

Even though the concepts presented and the actors' accents may pose difficulties to the adult students who wish to watch this excellent movie without any subtitles, it is definitely worth trying!



Based on the bestselling, award-winning novel by Irvin Yalom, "When Nietzsche Wept" tells the story of obsession, a drama of love, fate and will that formed the basis of modern psychoanalysis. Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Dr. Josef Breuer, Louise (Lou) von Salome and Anna O - these compelling characters cross paths when Breuer and Freud agree to treat Nietzsche; a sick, poor and unknown philosopher. The story follows the dramatic lives of two of the most important and enigmatic men who would change the course of Europe's intellectual history and the intriguing women who inspired and ruined them.
