My Name Was Sabina Spielrein, 17 June 2007
Author: Waddah74 from Jordan

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.
