Synopsis

An unusual story of a triangular relationship in Vienna. A woman shares an apartment with a man named Malina. The woman meets Ivan and falls under his spell. It will be her last great passion. Her feelings are so strong and all-encompassing that Ivan can neither understand nor return them.

Our take

MUBI is thrilled to unveil the restoration of this criminally overlooked adaptation of Ingeborg Bachmann’s novel. A startling depiction of female consciousness with a jaw-dropping Isabelle Huppert, Werner Schroeter’s hallucinatory love triangle overflows with subconscious frenzy and fervid passions.
