The Synopsis for A Dangerous Method (2011) 1080p

Suffering from hysteria, Sabina Spielrein is hospitalized under the care of Dr. Carl Jung who has begun using Dr. Sigmund Freud's talking cure with some of his patients. Spielrain's psychological problems are deeply rooted in her childhood and violent father. She is highly intelligent however and hopes to be a doctor, eventually becoming a psychiatrist in her own right. The married Jung and Spielrein eventually become lovers. Jung and Freud develop an almost father-son relationship with Freud seeing the young Jung as his likely successor as the standard-bearer of his beliefs. A deep rift develops between them when Jung diverges from Freud's belief that while psychoanalysis can reveal the cause of psychological problems it cannot cure the patient.

As a long admirer of David Cronenberg, I eagerly await each of his newfilms as if I am a young child on Christmas Eve. When announced thathis new film, A Dangerous Method, had him working with MichaelFassbender and (for a third time) Viggo Mortensen, two of my favoriteactors, as well as Keira Knightley and Vincent Cassel, I thought I musthave been dreaming. Adding on that the film was going to be anexploration into the relationship between Carl Jung (portrayed byFassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), the gods of psychoanalysis,and this had the makings for Cronenberg's masterpiece. So one can onlybegin to imagine my dismay when, after a promising first act, ADangerous Method turned out to be the most inordinately tame andpedestrian Cronenberg film in over thirty years.

David Cronenberg made a name for himself in the film community thanksto his studies into dark, controversial topics of sexual obsessions andfetishes, so a story depicting the works of Jung and Freud seemed likea perfect fit for him, and I was hardly able to process how lazily heapproached the minds of these men. The first act felt like punch afterpunch (in a good way), with very stern, rapid dialogues detailing thesexual desires of Sabina Spielrein (Knightley), a new patient ofJung's. Despite Knightley's hilariously hammy performance, which had meclose to fits of laughter every time she unhinged her jaw or thrashedabout the room hysterically, each scene sizzled with sexual tension andwas nailed with precision by Fassbender's stoic portrayal.

Anyone who knows the history of the story (or has seen the trailer)knows that Jung and Spielrein eventually engage in a sexualrelationship of their own and I believe the release of this tensionbetween the two of them is where the film starts to fall of it's axis.After the incredibly intense and erotic first act, featuring a scenewhere Jung runs a test on his wife (Sarah Gadon) that is as gripping asanything in cinema this past year, the whole thing begins to fizzle outwhen that tension is released and it only becomes more and more flat asit goes on.

Whenever Jung and Freud are in the same room together the film beginsto light back up, as Fassbender and Mortensen engage in a tete-a-tetefor the ages, both men succumbed by their intelligence and arrogance tothe point where they refuse to see the other as their equal despitetheir claims to be doing just that. Watching these two marvelouslytalented actors bounce of each other, it's devastating that the rest ofthe film couldn't measure up to their skill, and that half of theirscenes interacting together are done through them opening notes fromone another. The story spreads it's time (quite distractingly) betweenthe Jung/Freud dynamic and the Jung/Spielrein one, and it's in thelatter that it completely misses the mark.

Once that sexual tension is released, the chemistry between these twopractically ceases to exist and each scene feels like a dull exercisein the standard infidelity plot line. When the film reaches it's finalact and there are scenes of forced attempts at emotional payoffs, it'simpossible to feel anything because I wasn't able to feel anything fromthe relationship the entire time leading up to it. There's no realprogression in their relationship on anything but a surface level andas a result the payoff falls completely flat.

It certainly doesn't help that, for all of the controversial eroticismin his career past, Cronenberg takes on the carnal moments of thisstory with the lazy banality of someone much inferior to himself.Several of the dialogue-driven scenes sizzle with a sexual intensity,but when matters are actually taken to the bedroom they are hit with adullness that would be impossible to believe came from Cronenberg if hedidn't have his name stamped on it. In a year that gave us PedroAlmodovar's The Skin I Live In, the most Cronenbergian film I've seenthat didn't come from the man himself, it's unbelievably disappointingthat this one is so removed from the standard this genius deserves.It's unlike anything he's done before, and I mean that in the worst waypossible.

Given his entire filmography is concerned with themes linked to man'sidentity and the complexities of human sexuality, David Cronenberg is,on paper at least, the ideal director for A Dangerous Method, a moviedealing with the birth of psychoanalysis. Then again, the film is alsoa bit of an odd fit for him, since the script by Christopher Hampton(Dangerous Liaisons) doesn't really lend itself to the outbursts ofgraphic violence that permeate the Canadian auteur's body of work. Theresult, first witnessed at the Venice Film Festival (after the film hadallegedly been rejected by Cronenberg's fest of choice, Cannes), is aninteresting but somewhat hollow entry in the director's admirablecareer.

Ostensibly about the professional relationship between Sigmund Freud(Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), A DangerousMethod is in reality more concerned with the bond between Jung andSabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), a young woman sent to his clinic inZurich since her mental condition is an ideal subject for his research.Sabina, it turns out, is incredibly well-read, and soon progresses frompatient to assistant, much to the amusement of Freud, who correspondsregularly with Jung about their mutual scientific interests and alsomeets the young woman on a few occasions. The relationship between thethree evolves in even stranger ways as time passes, with Sabina takingan unexpected place in Jung's heart...

With its combination of psychoanalysis and sex, the story - perhapsfamiliar to European film buffs thanks to Roberto Faenza'sItalian-language take on the same subject - has all the rightcharacteristics to be vintage Cronenberg (hints of which are offered inthe opening and closing credits via Howard Shore's music). And yetthere's something missing: whereas the reconstruction of Vienna in theearly 20th century is impeccable, the director appears to be lessinterested in the actual development of story and character, with arather detached approach that suggests he's almost working onautopilot. That having said, part of the blame can be laid on Hampton,whose screenplay only glosses over key details of the story, leaving uswith a quite simplified, "safe" version of events (the sex is unusuallytame and unchallenging for a Cronenberg film).

The performances are a mixed bag as well: Knightley, stuck with theshowy role, is unbearably OTT in the first 30 minutes, shouting andshaking endlessly before she eventually tones down the mania andfocuses on finding the character, complete with a solid Russian accent.At the other end of the spectrum is Mortensen, pitch-perfect from thestart but criminally underused, especially considering his pastassociations with Cronenberg. And then there's Fassbender, quietlyintense and generally up to the task, were it not for his decision tospeak RP English when he and Mortensen, who adopts a German accent, aresupposed to be from the same country (this is even more perplexing ifone thinks of Fassbender's flawless mastery of German).

A Dangerous Method is thus a textbook case of a film that, while notdisappointing in the strict sense of the word, comes off as a minoreffort in a generally spotless filmography. But even on an off-day,Cronenberg deserves to be seen at least once. Just don't expect anotherHistory of Violence...

This started very well, great cast, landscapes, scenography, charactersetc. I loved the idea of to greatest psychology minds working togetheron improving therapy methods and changing the approach to curing peopleof their traumas and problems. Where i find the movie failed a bit isthe story where the connections in the scenes are bit off. I got thefeeling that it was jumping trough periods without any connection whichi could put together. It seemed like there were years in gaps betweencouple of scenes where there wasn't any. Even if this followed onlytrue life events of Jung and Freud it still leaves us with wanting morethen just few dialogs and scratch on the surface of psychologytreatments. Kinsey (2004) is a movie which is a good parallel examplehow a movie about similar subject can be and can be done brilliantly.Maybe movies about lives of both Jung and Freud are in order. So, allin all, i enjoyed watching it, everyone did a great job and gives you agood feeling after, it has minor gaps in the story which doesn't makeyou stick to the chair but definitely recommend it to everyone.
