Traumnovelle (1969) ***1/2

This Austrian/German TV movie is based on the same novella that Kubrick's EYES WIDE SHUT was based on and the similarities are quite striking. Kubrick definitely realized the story to a degree that this film was unable to, thanks in part to a doubled run-time, but the scenes and plot points are largely the same. Some of the dialogue is even identical. I hope some day this gets a home video release, as I watched a YouTube rip - the only known version I've seen anywhere.
