Jung at the Movies — Notorious

Animus: An Exploration of the Movie Notorious (Alfred Hitchcock, 1946)

Alice Huberman (Ingrid Bergman), the American daughter of a convicted Nazi spy, is recruited by government agent T. R. Devlin (Cary Grant) to infiltrate a group of Germans who have relocated to Brazil. The animus figures that Alice encounters range from loving, yet distrustful, to scary and utterly dangerous.

We will examine the different representations of the animus in the movie and look at the impact they may have on the central character and her mission.

A discussion will follow on the theme of the animus and its manifestations both in the movie and in real life.

Limit: 15-20 people.
