    The young psychiatrist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) are seeking the best technique for treating patients who demonstrate the most difficult psychological problems. Then along comes Sabina (Keira Knightley), a very disturbed patient who threatens to overturn the two doctors’ theories as well as destroy their relationship.

    Cronenberg brings us an intellectual film with touches of mystery and sensuality. A Dangerous Method questions not only the rigid society of the early 20th century but also enables us to assimilate the lack of control that exists when we find ourselves face-to-face with carnal knowledge.
