It is criminal that this profoundly scripted and beautiful piece should have no commentary on IMDb and that has inspired me to write my first IMDb review. I was fortunate enough to see this work a special screening in London. Although the film is based on the imagined lives of Freud's patients, one needs no prior knowledge, and can just enjoy the massive talents of Scofield and Schell devouring the meaty script. This script weaves their stories with footage of Revolutionary Russia and Nazified Austria to investigate whether we are determined by nature or nurture, but it does so in an accessible, compelling way. The prodigious talents of the young Diana Quick, Claire Higgins and Colin Firth are just added attractions to this worthy watch.
