One of Freud’s most curious case studies – in which an 18-year-old suicidal woman walks out on her psychoanalytic treatments after three months – undergoes a fascinating deconstruction. Precisely reflecting the feminist and formalist concerns of its time, this film constructs a complex relationship between sound, image and text via a conversation about psychoanalysis with interludes that juxtapose television adverts and pornography.
