A Dangerous Method – Brilliant Trailer

Here is an intresting and intrguing trailer of the upcoming movie A Dangerous Method. Directed by David Cronenberg (Eastern promises, A History of Violence fame), the movie is about how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis. Starring Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud , Michael Fassbender (the real star of X Men First Class) as Carl Jung and Keira Knightley as Sabina Spielrein.

The screenplay was adapted by Academy Award-winning writer Christopher Hampton from his 2002 stage play The Talking Cure, itself based on the 1993 non-fiction book by John Kerr, A Most Dangerous Method. The film marks the third collaboration between Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen (after A History of Violence and Eastern Promises). This is also the third film British film producer Jeremy Thomas has made with Cronenberg, after together completing the William Burroughs adaptation Naked Lunch and the J.G. Ballard adaptation Crash. A Dangerous Method was a German/Canadian co-production.

Set on the eve of the World War I, A Dangerous Method is based on the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud, and Sabina Spielrein, the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them. The trailer is interesting and looks like a winner-
