Directed by John Huston and starring Montgomery Clift and Susannah York, Frued, released on DVD on 23rd April 2012 by Transition Digital Media is very much a forerunner of David Cronenberg's recent and critically acclaimed A Dangerous Method.
Frued, released on DVD on 23rd April 2012 by Transition Digital Media is very much a forerunner of David Cronenberg's recent and critically acclaimed A Dangerous Method. Legendary director John Huston (Prizzi's Honor; The Man Who Would Be King; The Asphalt Jungle; Moulin Rouge; The African Queen; The Maltese Falcon) approaches his biopic of one of the world's most famous psychoanalysts as one would a noir-ish crime thriller, making his take on Sigmund Freud's compelling story all the more fascinating and original.
Vienna, 1885 and gifted young neurologist Sigmund Freud (Montgomery Clift) has begun to experiment with the use of hypnosis in the treatment of two psychotic patients, one a young man (David McCallum) with an obsessive hatred of his father, the other a young woman named Cecily Koertner (Susannah York) whose deep-rooted mental problems repeatedly manifest themselves as debilitating physical ailments.
Concentrating on examining and attempting to explain the recurring nightmares that have left Cecily sexually repressed, hysterical and fixated on her dead father, Freud develops a theory that links the subconscious to erotic fantasies that he believes go back to childhood. As he makes progress with curing Cecily's condition, Freud's work leads him to uncovering the origins of his own previously ignored neuroses.
Freud stars Montgomery Clift (From Here To Eternity; A Place In The Sun), Susannah York (Superman; A Man For All Seasons; They Shoot Horses, Don't They?), Larry Parks (The Jolson Story) and David McCallum (NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service; the Replacements).
