"A work full of beautiful ideas." Francois Truffaut
Constance Petersen is a psychiatrist in a facility run by Dr. Murchison, about to retire. She immediately falls under the spell of her successor, Dr. Anthony Edwardes, even if the latter shows strange behavior. When the body of the real Edwardes is discovered, the usurper is persuaded to be the perpetrator, despite suffering total amnesia. But Constance is convinced of her innocence...
With The House of Doctor Edwardes , Alfred Hitchcock offers himself a brilliant foray into the world of psychoanalysis. Driven by the charisma of the duo Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman, this brilliant Freudian-inspired enigma multiplies the twists and visual prowess, especially during a famous dream sequence remarkably conceived by Salvador Dalí. A fascinating dive into the troubles of the human soul, to be found in its sublime restored version!
