**1/2 Mahler on the Couch Using the real 1910 meeting between composer Gustav Mahler and psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud as a springboard, this intentionally overripe melodrama examines the tormented marriage of Mahler (Johannes Silberschneider) and his hotsy younger wife, Alma (Barbara Romaner). Taken in the right spirit, it’s enjoyably ridiculous, with Mahler’s music smeared over everything. In German, with subtitles. (98 min., unrated) (Ty Burr)
