  • A Dangerous Method

    2011. Canada/Germany/Great Britain/Switzerland. Directed by David Cronenberg. Screenplay by Christopher Hampton, based on his play The Talking Cure and the book A Most Dangerous Method by John Kerr. With Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender. "In Christopher Hampton's original play I knew I found a rich vein to mine for the screen. This tale of emotional variance, overshadowed by the portents of WWI, promised an insight into two intense and inextricably interwoven relationships. The fact that the characters were gifted true-life figures, and that the triangle of Jung, Freud, and Sabina resulted in the birth of modern psychoanalysis, made it all the more tantalizing to me. It was a strange 'menage a trois' not that Sabina had any sexual relations with Freud, but still there was love in each part of the triangle, including Jung and Freud" (Cronenberg).
