The key Freudian psychobabble terms mentioned in the film were "transference" and "counter transference". The Australian VHS home video sleeve notes state that "transference" is when a patient falls in love with their therapist. "Counter-transference" is when a therapist loves them back. The terms were first described by Sigmund Freud who is played in the film by Alec Guinness. See more »

If you are looking for fantasy with a happy ending, this is it.
The Beautiful Elizabeth Mcgovern and Dudley Moore make a interesting couple.She's ( 5'10')tall, he is short, She has a Mid-West accent and he has a English accent, He's calm and she has anxiety neurosis.They say opposites attract.
There are some interesting " Freudian Slips " in the movie. Moore's fantasy about being in the late 19th Century, rowing her down the river, and both being attired appropriately ( she is stunning to say the least )is based on the painting in his office.During a Analytic session she puts him into her recollection of a book,because his first name ( Saul ) and the author's first name are the same.Finally, in the beginning of the flick, his friend,Otto goes to cut his cake and puts the knife through his name as the camera records.Otto has a heart attack and dies. It was nice seeing Manhattan of the early 80's.Especially Chloe and Saul walking arm in arm in Central Park Also the soundtrack ( especially the flute )is and very excellent and soothing.
