A depressed vampire in 1930s Vienna seeks marriage counseling from Sigmund Freud with hilarious results. Count Geza von Kozsnom (Tobias Moretti) has lost his thirst for life, and his eternally long marriage cooled centuries ago. Fortunately, Sigmund Freud (Karl Fischer), with his innovative new approach to solving life’s existential problems, is accepting new patients. During their strictly nocturnal sessions, the good doctor suggests the Count appease his vain wife Elsa (Jeanette Hain), desperate to see her own beauteous reflection, by commissioning a portrait of her by his assistant, Viktor (Dominic Oley), an aspiring painter employed to illustrate the dreams of Dr. Freud’s patients. But when the Count meets Viktor’s headstrong girlfriend Lucy (Cornelia Ivancan) he is immediately attracted, convinced she’s the reincarnation of his long lost one true love. Soon, the whole crowd is a hilarious mess of mistaken identities and misplaced affections in this send-up of the vampire genre, proving once and for all that 500 years of marriage is enough. Winner of the Audience Award at the Fantasia Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)
