When Nietzsche Wept is a 2007 indie drama film directed by Pinchas Perry, based on the novel of the same name by Irvin D. Yalom. The story fictionalizes a meeting between the real-life characters, the influential philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (Armand Assante) and pioneering psychoanalyst Josef Breuer (Ben Cross). Set in 19th-century Vienna, the narrative explores the deep intellectual connections between the two men as they engage in a therapeutic relationship. As Breuer attempts to treat Nietzsche's despair, the sessions lead both men on introspective journeys, addressing life's profound questions.
