A hit in Europe, "Lou" arrives in the US

Katharine Lorenz as Lou Andreas-Salomé and Julius Feldmeier as Rilke

Novelist, critic and pioneering psychoanalyst, Lou Andreas-Salomé was one of the most influential people of her day. But her legacy has often been overshadowed by her relationships with the famous men she worked with: Nietzsche, Rilke and Freud.

Cordula Kablitz sets the record straight in Lou Andreas-Salomé, now available in the US from Vimeo and Amazon and in Europe from Amazon and iTunes. The Swiss newspaper Luzerner Zeitung says the film "brings an unbelievable biography thrillingly alive."

Liv Lisa Fries, from Babylon Berlin, plays the teenaged Louisa von Salomé
