Bride of the Wind

Bruce Beresford
Alma Schindler was born to luxury and sophistication in turn-of-the-century Vienna. Willful, sensual, and talented, she was considered the most beautiful and fascinating woman in a city renowned for its exotic women. She was muse to many famous men, overcoming the social limitations placed on her by structured society. Not only did Alma marry the famed composer Gustav Mahler, architect Walter Gropius and poet/novelist Franz Werfel but she also enjoyed affairs with artists Gustav Klimt, and Oskar Kokoschka. Beautifully immersed in the world of music and art, Bride of the Wind, takes full advantage of the lush beauty of turn-of-the-century Vienna, a city that is seductive in itself. Alma's life is an erotic journey that is unforgettably, passionate and artistic.
