|Whether it's the bizarre manner in which Breuer refers to Freud as 'Siggy' or the odd scenes to do with diegetic classical music complete with orchestra that Nietzsche himself composes to the bemusement of those around him, the film remains an interesting look at a subject that is being dealt with head on rather than in a metaphorical or dramatic way, much like Hitchcock and Lynch have done in the past||The point When Nietzsche Wept has going for it the whole time is the age of these primary characters|
|I just wonder how many people are going to be tuned in to seeking out and sitting through a film all about psychoanalysis, detailing very briefly the more desperate incidences in the lives of some of the most brilliant minds ever to have graced Earth||But this isn't the end of it|
Viennese doctor Josef Breuer meets with philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche to help him deal with his despair.

|The frightening thing that should remain at the back of the viewer's mind is 'what if you were very ill, but you did not know of the illness you have? Viennese doctor Josef Breuer meets with philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche to help him deal with his despair||We the audience ask the question of what is going on and just when it seems the impossible or the downright obscure is about to happen, our questions are answered|
The film is a concentrated study on illness and the effects of illness but the said sickness is more affiliated to love or problems of a psychological kind.4
