Bride of the Wind (2001) short review


Falls into the usual trap of based-on-a-real-person movies of trying to cover too much time.  Set in the 1900s and 1910s, it tells the story of Alma Mahler, wife of composer Gustav Mahler.  The up side is that Sarah Wynter as Alma is really quite good, and visually it’s beautiful with lovely costumes.

    Everything I know about Alma comes from the Wikipedia and the Tom Lehrer song.
    BTW — does anyone have any comments on “Ripper Street”?
