Can an analyst do his work if he is going through an extreme situation ? Can an analyst answer to an analytical demand if in fact the request is an extortive one ? A request of information on a patient in exchange for the life of his daughter ? Or better said, can he choose not to comply with the request ? The choice would certainly be a forced one, but forced by whom ? – a subject will appear from the lengthy considerations of that choice, but which one ? These questions guide our interpretation of the film and cast doubts on the analytic act, its reading and the subject that arises from it.
