Movie Info

Narration and re-enactments bring to life the story of Sabina who, as a teenager, had a breakdown and was one of Carl Jung's early psychiatric patients, eventually becoming his lover, then entering the field herself. Her career contributions were largely forgotten, until the discovery of a box of her papers and diaries in 1977.

  • Merton's film seeks to restore Spielrein's place in history.

    September 17, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4.0 | Full Review…
  • 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.
