"Many of the films analyzed in this book raise issues and topics that would not be publicly discussed without the innovative efforts of several generations of analysts - such topics are the incest, the trauma and the war as violence rather than heroism. In this sense, cinema also exists thanks to the efforts of analysts. In turn, the films have modeled the public image of psychoanalysts by introducing them as characters. As is often the case, these two peers have done much for their mutual development. Placing them side by side in this book is an important contribution to understanding this fruitful influence."
