Marton tells this romantic and tragic story economically and imaginatively.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

Hats off to Elisabeth Marton, who has taken a bunch of dry facts and fashioned them into the gorgeous My Name Was Sabina Spielrein.

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.

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

The director Elisabeth Márton uses a trove of letters and diaries to tell the story of Sabina Spielrein, an important figure in the earliest days of psychoanalysis.
