Our story deals with psychoanalysis, the method by which modern science treats the emotional problems of the sane.” The film, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most interesting, starts with these words printed in bold letters over the image of the Green Manors Hospital. It tells the story of Dr. Constance Petersen, a psychoanalyst working in New York in the 1940s, who must deal with a case that will shake her practice. The film also pays homage to surrealism, as the dream sequences were based on designs by Salvador Dalí. The article redeems the analytical and ethical actuality of this film, showing its purposeful achievements in relation to Freud’s classical texts as well as with the present deontological-ethical treatment of transference love.
