The first images from Cronenberg’s  “A Dangerous Method”
David Cronenberg’s new movie is called “A Dangerous Method” and it stars Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender as the legendary duo of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. The movie is based on Christopher Hampton’s famous play “The Talking Cure”. David Cronenberg began shooting in May, and should be wrapping up sometime later this month, or early in August, in places like Vienna, Zurich and Munich. Also in the film is Keira Knightley as Sabina, who eventually became a lover of Jung’s. Photos have just been released from the set, showing both Mortensen and Fassbender in costumes.

Here's the official synopsis: On the eve of WWI, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery. Drawn from true-life events, the film takes a glimpse into the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them.


Into the mix comes Otto Gross (Vincent Cassel), a debauched patient who is determined to push the boundaries. In this exploration of sensuality, ambition and deceit set the scene for the pivotal moment when Jung, Freud and Sabina come together and split apart, forever changing the face of modern thought.
