Yalom's Cure

A Guide to Happiness

One show only! “Irvin D. Yalom, world-famous psychiatrist and author of numerous best-sellers, is considered to be the most influential psychotherapist in the US. A million copies of his books have been sold the world over. Yalom’s Cure is more than just a simple biography; its power resides in its ability to make seemingly intimate and personal concerns universal. Sabine Gisiger guides us through the life of this extraordinary man with respect and decency: showing the public character but also and especially his deeper inner self, his rich spiritual life. The complexity of this dichotomy between professional image and private life is artistically conveyed by the Swiss director who succeeds in captivating us, making us almost forget about the present and guiding us in a timeless way.

“Gisiger offers us a sort of psychoanalysis through cinema. She allows us, for a brief privileged instant to confront our inner self, with all our distress but also with our desires, our dreams. Irvin Yalom shows us how these fears that we believe to be intimate and personal are in effect universal and just how important it is to face up to them if we want to live in peace (or at least, in a more carefree way) with others and above all with ourselves. Might the magic of cinema not just be about opening windows onto the world, pushing us to reflect as much on society as on our intimate concerns?” - Cineuropa
