Synopsis


A classic Hitchcock mystery, SPELLBOUND features stunning performances from Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck plus a captivating dream sequence by Surrealist icon Salvador Dalí. A psychological thriller delivered in a manner that Sir Alfred Hitchcock is renowned for, the film follows Dr. Constance Petersen (Bergman), a psychoanalyst at Green Manors mental asylum, who becomes entangled in a mystery when the new director, Dr. Anthony Edwardes (Peck), arrives. However, she soon discovers that Edwardes is an impostor suffering from amnesia, and they begin to unravel a web of deceit and psychological trauma. Arguably the film's most memorable scene is a surreal dream sequence designed by Salvador Dalí, depicting the protagonist's subconscious fears and desires. This dream sequence has become iconic for its visually striking imagery and its exploration of Freudian themes. The overall result is a gripping thriller that delves into the complexities of the human mind, blending elements of romance, mystery, and psychological intrigue to create a suspenseful and thought-provoking cinematic experience.
