A fascinating historical tale is rendered with less than compelling results in this pseudo-documentary.

Combining dramatic re-creations with readings from long-forgotten letters and journal entries, Elisabeth Marton's enlightening depiction of the life and tragic death of Sabina Spielrein has all the markings of a historical potboiler.

This evocative film is a poignant testament to the twin forces of love (however blighted) and the unconscious.

When the director sticks to the facts, with narration, letters and photos, she brings Spielrein back to her appropriate place in history, as an influential figure in her own right.
