Freud: Madonna (S1EP4 BBC-2 5 Oct 1984, Allan Corduner)



Madonna: An intriguing new relationship develops when Minna Bernays, Freud’s attractive sister-in-law, joins the family. Freud’s recent ‘child seduction’ theory has outraged Vienna, leaving him, professionally, more isolated than ever. With Martha consigned to maternal duties and the Fliess friendship deteriorating, increasingly, Minna alone shares Sigmund’s private frustrations until the celebrated ‘Oedipus’ theory ensures his future.
