Given his entire filmography is concerned with themes linked to man'sidentity and the complexities of human sexuality, David Cronenberg is,on paper at least, the ideal director for A Dangerous Method, a moviedealing with the birth of psychoanalysis. Then again, the film is alsoa bit of an odd fit for him, since the script by Christopher Hampton(Dangerous Liaisons) doesn't really lend itself to the outbursts ofgraphic violence that permeate the Canadian auteur's body of work. Theresult, first witnessed at the Venice Film Festival (after the film hadallegedly been rejected by Cronenberg's fest of choice, Cannes), is aninteresting but somewhat hollow entry in the director's admirablecareer.

Ostensibly about the professional relationship between Sigmund Freud(Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), A DangerousMethod is in reality more concerned with the bond between Jung andSabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), a young woman sent to his clinic inZurich since her mental condition is an ideal subject for his research.Sabina, it turns out, is incredibly well-read, and soon progresses frompatient to assistant, much to the amusement of Freud, who correspondsregularly with Jung about their mutual scientific interests and alsomeets the young woman on a few occasions. The relationship between thethree evolves in even stranger ways as time passes, with Sabina takingan unexpected place in Jung's heart...

With its combination of psychoanalysis and sex, the story - perhapsfamiliar to European film buffs thanks to Roberto Faenza'sItalian-language take on the same subject - has all the rightcharacteristics to be vintage Cronenberg (hints of which are offered inthe opening and closing credits via Howard Shore's music). And yetthere's something missing: whereas the reconstruction of Vienna in theearly 20th century is impeccable, the director appears to be lessinterested in the actual development of story and character, with arather detached approach that suggests he's almost working onautopilot. That having said, part of the blame can be laid on Hampton,whose screenplay only glosses over key details of the story, leaving uswith a quite simplified, "safe" version of events (the sex is unusuallytame and unchallenging for a Cronenberg film).

The performances are a mixed bag as well: Knightley, stuck with theshowy role, is unbearably OTT in the first 30 minutes, shouting andshaking endlessly before she eventually tones down the mania andfocuses on finding the character, complete with a solid Russian accent.At the other end of the spectrum is Mortensen, pitch-perfect from thestart but criminally underused, especially considering his pastassociations with Cronenberg. And then there's Fassbender, quietlyintense and generally up to the task, were it not for his decision tospeak RP English when he and Mortensen, who adopts a German accent, aresupposed to be from the same country (this is even more perplexing ifone thinks of Fassbender's flawless mastery of German).

A Dangerous Method is thus a textbook case of a film that, while notdisappointing in the strict sense of the word, comes off as a minoreffort in a generally spotless filmography. But even on an off-day,Cronenberg deserves to be seen at least once. Just don't expect anotherHistory of Violence...

I've only read very few of Jung's and Freud's abstracts of work buti've always been interested in knowing a bit more. A Dangerous Methodcleared some of my questions and was pleasant for me to watch and learna thing or two about their contributions and contradictions inpsycho-analysis.

What is emphasized in this film is their well known "disagreement" onsexual activity (libido) and apparently religion. Something that's beenbrought here by a female patient of Jung, Sabina Spielrein -played byKeira Knightley, who's been diagnosed with hysteria and was admitted toBurghölzli Clinic in Zürich in 1906. Michael Fassbender (Jung) andViggo Mortensen (Freud) both performed seriously and insightful andKnightley captured pretty well the behavior of a hysteric person andthen, her transition through therapy.

The German locations where the filming took place were picturesque andthe atmosphere was warm, theatrical, peaceful enough but rather slow atsome points. The intense relationship between the Austrian neurologistand the Swiss psychiatrist was very interesting to watch nevertheless.

The reason i enjoyed this film is simple: It was exactly what i wasexpecting it to be. Educational. And the fact that a talented cast didtheir best to bring out on the screen such facts, has left me asatisfied watcher full of interest and food for thoughts.

There's Something Missing Here...Reviewed bykkhannahVote: 6/10

I must admit, going into this film, I was rather excited; I've enjoyed both of David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen's previous collaborations and my interest in both Freudian psychology/psychoanalysis and Michael Fassbender practically guaranteed that I would be seeing this film. I fear now, however, that my expectations may have been a bit too high.

I must admit, however, that I thought that Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen played their roles very well, although Mortensen definitely didn't receive as much screen time as he deserved. Vincent Cassel definitely shone in his extended cameo as Otto Gross. I did have some issues with Keira Knightly's acting, however. I feel like she may have over exaggerated her actions, particularly in the beginning scenes where she is in the midst of hysteria.

However, my real problem with this film is that, for lack of a better term, it all seems a little too shallow. Events that should be important are skimmed over and not explained; to be honest, it doesn't particularly seem like anything of real importance happens in the film. The characters have little depth; despite the fact that they are all playing rather well known persons, there simply isn't anything to them other than a name. On top of this, despite what the taglines of the film and trailer seem to suggest, the relationship between Freud and Jung is hardly explored. For the most part, their scenes involve reading letters from the other. This is hardly compelling viewing.

Overall, I feel like this film would have been better if it had been longer. If the film had a running time of even two hours, compared to one and a half, more character development could have been inserted, particularly for Freud. In addition, more focus on Jung's relationship with Freud, rather than his relationship with Spielrein, would have been nice to see.

Here's hoping that any future collaborations between Cronenberg and Mortensen pack a bit more of a punch.
