A Student Of Freud’s 


Max Liebermann (Matthew Beard) is a brilliant young English doctor, studying under the famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Max is keen to understand the criminal mind and begins to observe Oskar Rheinhardt (Juergen Maurer), a Detective Inspector in the Vienna Police Department, who is struggling with a perplexing case. Max’s extraordinary skills of perception and forensics and his deep understanding of human behavior and deviance help Oskar solve Vienna’s most mysterious cases.
Matthew Beard is a middle class British-Jew who moved to Austria in his teens. He is now a junior doctor but has fallen under the spell of the new science of the day and is studying neurology. Fixated by the idea of analysing psychopaths at close hand, Max convinces the Viennese police to let him observe their work.

 

Juergen Maurer is a Police Inspector Oskar, more a doer than a thinker. Despite being occasionally irritated by Max’s discursive approach to crime-solving, Oskar is savvy enough to know that Max’s intuitions will help his career prospects.
