I truly expected more with this movie, I was expecting more pathos, but regrettably it demonstrated scarcely including and too rational. Absolutely nothing to say from the perfect technical execution, and also the good acting, but what’s disappointing may be the
script, that ought to happen to be, for me, the most important component of the image. We don’t obtain the depth of every character, and also the subtlety of the relationship. Keira Knightely ‘s character is overacted, excessive,but ultimately underdeveloped, only the prototype of the pathologically insane. Freud seems a strange old guy, only taking care of exactly what the scientific community may think, although not as daring once we think he may have been, Jung is really a pathetic disloyal guy, however with an inner fragility we can’t see fully. And also the complexity from the relation analyst-patient in addition to master-disciple never arrives. It is a movie that appears to vow plenty, appears to become always near revealing something, but never will take off, as though the director desired to have a distance in the handled subject, as though scared of being taken away through the abyss from the human complex mind. Or possibly since the complexity is simply too great to become completely revealed? maybe, when you are this the main reason, the end result remains unconvincing.
