Doctor Fridolin and his wife Albertina are reminiscing about a wonderful party they attended the night before. Without warning Albertina confesses that while on their last holiday she had an intense sexual attraction to another man. Although she did not act on her attraction her admission has a profound impact on her husband.

Dream Story explores the themes of sexual revenge and how familiarity can breed contempt in a marriage. It also shows how order and stability can entice someone to seek adventure and excitement they lack in their everyday lives instead of having a calming and fulfilling effect.

I enjoyed the abstract themes of the book more so than the libidinous themes. Schnitzler asks interesting questions about how real our lives are, how our lives may just be remnants of a dream and suggests that maybe the only reality that matters is the one that we believe in.

I was interested in knowing how much of EWS came from the book. The answer: most of it. I was surprised by that. Kubrick added some characters, particularly in the opening party scene. This was described only briefly in the novel but expanded greatly for the movie, In addition, the movie has better tag names: e.g. Domino (chance), Victor Ziegler (winner winner), Dr. Harford. And the red cape was not in the novel. But really, the movie really was based on the novel.
