Rat Man, The

Synopsis
A dramatised reconstruction of Sigmund Freud’s treatment of an obsessive-neurotic, a case history based on Freud’s original notes. The story centres around the fears of a young Austrian army officer who suffered from obsessive behaviour since childhood but was cured after 11 months with Freud. During this time Freud not only evolved a new technique of psychoanalysis but succeeded in penetrating, for the first time, a neurotic’s unconscious mind and proving the formative influences of early childhood experiences.
