Storyline

Marianne Loewe, a recently divorced, rather uptight college professor, is undergoing analysis with the elderly Dr. Anya Zurmer, a strict Freudian. About a month into Marianne's analysis, Dr. Zurmer suddenly chooses to abandon the rigid rules of psychoanalysis which have always guided her work. Marianne's relationship to Dr. Zurmer then becomes totally unorthodox and baffling to her and, for a while, to us. "Psychoanalysis Changed My Life" explores the path of this evolving relationship and the intriguing reasons for Dr. Zurmer's sudden change of method - and of heart. Written by Ellen Novack

Pleasant little film with a bit of a twist at the end
21 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman is in the middle of a emotionally wrenching session with her psychoanalyst (an older woman) when the analyst suddenly changes her technique and instead of just listening to the woman free associate begins being more directive. In fact, the analyst begins suggesting that the woman make some alterations to her wardrobe and her hair style. This triggers a change in their relationship that leads to the woman discovering a lot more about her analyst than she ever thought she would. These revelations help the woman break out of her self-obsessed shell and begin real healing. The last few minutes of the film reveal why the analyst was taking such a personal interest in her patient.

A delightful and warm-hearted little film that covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
