Rebel, philosopher, femme fatale and psychoanalyist: Lou Andreas-Salomé had many faces and fascinated the masterminds of her age. Vowing to never marry, Lou pushed the boundaries of her time, living and studying with Paul Rée and pursuing a life of intellect and free-spiritedness. It is only when she meets writer Rainer Maria Rilke, that Lou falls in love, setting off a spiral of events leading to her becoming one of the first female psychoanalysts. www.wildbunch-germany.de/lou-andreas-salome
