Fascinating Movie, Just Not For Kids

Over all, this movie is about the relationship between Carl Jung and a female patient, Sabrina, who is a masochist. The movie talks a lot about sex and how she was sexually excited by her father spanking her, the humiliation she felt, and how she was sexually excited by that, too. When she arrives at the clinic she is thrashing around a laughing like an insane person, and continues to have on and off psychotic episodes for the next fifteen minutes. She jumps in a small pond with all her clothes on and is dragged out by guards so she can feel sexually excited by the humiliation. Jung asks her if she's masturbated the previous night and she tells him yes. There are a few sex scenes between Jung and Sabrina, including one where Jung is briefly shown spanking her with a belt. Sabrina's breasts are shown briefly and there is a spot of blood on the sheets. A man is also shown having sex with a woman in the back yard of Jung's clinic. Throughout the movie Freud talks about his theories on psycho-sexual analysis. Both Jung and Freud drink socially and Freud is often seen smoking a cigar. The f word is thrown around a few times but overall the language isn't too bad. When talking about genitals and other sexual body parts the proper words are used. Overall this movie is very talky, and most kids would find its story boring and may not understand what's going on. I thought the movie was an interesting look at a unique patient.
