David Cronenberg in Venice – Face to Face with the director of A Dangerous Method
If you were expecting the same David Cronenberg of “Crash” or “Videodrome” for “A Dangerous Method” you’ll be disappointed. The film presented as a competing movie at Venice Film Festival is distant light years from the Cronenberg we’re used to. In this movie Cronenberg offers us a precise analysis of the relationship between Sigmund Freud, Carl Gustav Jung and the young womand who stands between them: Sabina Spielrein.
We met the director in Venice and in this exclusive interview he explained to us the reasons why he was pushed to tell this story and how he worked with the cast, that defining big is an understatement: Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender and Vincent Cassel.
