Can an analyst do his work if he is going through an extreme situation? Can an analyst answer to an analytical demand if in fact the request is an extortive one? A request of information on a patient in exchange for the life of his daughter? Or better said, can he choose not to comply with the request? The choice would certainly be a forced one, but forced by whom? – a subject will appear from the lengthy considerations of that choice, but which one? These questions guide our interpretation of the film and cast doubts on the analytic act, its reading and the subject that arises from it.
