Storyline

The history of psychoanalysis is littered with the discarded psyches of the women whose diagnoses were key to the fame of the great masters. One such woman was Sabina Spielrein. Unlike the rest, she didn't vanish forever from history. Elisabeth Márton's film relates, restages and remembers the tragic story of Spielrein's life as gleaned from a box of her papers discovered in 1977 in the cellar of Geneva's former Institute of Psychology. Spielrein was a young Russian-Jewish woman of 18 when she arrived in August 1904 at the Burghölzli clinic in Zurich where Carl Gustav Jung had set up shop. She was his first patient. He was 29 and married. Her cathexis was rapid and she formed an intense attachment to her young doctor, who seems to have reciprocated. But after Sigmund Freud's note (above) on the nefarious nature of females, the doctors hatched the theory of counter-transference to explain their feelings. Luckily, this wouldn't be Sabina's final contribution to psychoanalysis. ... Written by B. Ruby Rich

My Name Was Sabina Spielrein
17 June 2007 | by (Jordan) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie , it is a great one ….. We see how Sabina Spielrein a young woman with psychosis unable to move on with her life she is anorexic and nervous with episodes of deep depression , but with the help of Dr. Carl Gustav Jung who has faith in her, she regains her self-esteem , and a love story develops between the two which ends dramatically . She overcame her grief after that relationship and start working in psychoanalysis , in Russia she organized a school for troubled children one of them appears at the end of the movie an old man now with tears in his eyes describing and thanking Spielrein for her help back then . Her school was destroyed by the communist regime of the former soviet union . The movie faithfully restores Spielrein to her rightful place as a crucial contributor to the fields of child psychology and psychoanalysis.
