“If you want to have a life, steal it!” She scorned Nietzsche, contravened Rilke, and mesmerized Freud. Who was Lou Andreas-Salomé? Director Cordula Kablitz-Post portrays the Russian-German writer and psychoanalyst with all of her ambiguity. Due to her unconventionality and desire for freedom she was considered one of the first emancipated women – although she never personally advocated women’s rights.
