One of Freud’s dreams? World religions play an important role in Schmitt’s writing. The debate between the atheist Freud and the Visitor at the heart of the piece is more like a summary of a textbook discussion of the subject.

Schmitt tries to suggest he may be an escapee from a mental institution or a figment of Freud’s imagination, but he emmanudl allow us to maintain these doubts long enough to create any ambiguity. The play clears the ground for faith but doesn’t go any further. He doesn’t say, but I know through other people, that today, he knows the greatest speeches of the play by heart.

The scene is set at Freud’s home in Vienna on the worst evening of the scientist’s life. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.


Lists with This Book. It’s one of the best-conceived designs of the year.

Le Visiteur

Schmitt covers a variety of themes in his work. I buried the play at the back of a drawer without even putting a dried flower on it. Naturally, he was the one whose advice I followed. Furthermore, Freud knows that his cancer doesn’t leave him much time and Anna, his beloved daughter, has just been arrested by the Nazis. The play is still a success in every theatre where it is on. What makes the piece enjoyable is obviously intense commitment of all involved.

What are major worries to Freud are beneath consideration for the omniscient Visitor, who already knows Freud and Anna will escape to London, where Freud will write “Moses and Monotheism”. Both of his parents were physical schmtit teachers. He is of Alsation extraction.

What can the remedy be? And I still am, although I have joined the ranks of those who adore The Visitor. The best aspect of Schmitt’s play is his characterization of God as a nonchalant dandy.

Dennis O’Connor does not give us Freud the icon but paints a vivid, very human portrait visuteur a father and passionate intellectual. But no matter; he agrees to listen to his strange visitor and even agrees to enter into discussion visitehr him. It enables Schmitt to deal casually with the most impenetrable mysteries and the most serious topics. Nina Okens’ elegant costume for the Visitor hardly suggests the madhouse and director Guy Mignault emmnauel him enter through a wall rather than the open widow beside it, thus underscoring his supernatural powers.


What seems to be a brick wall is really made of alternating books that are Torahs and Bibles. From this point on, against a background of gathering satanism, bestiality, and the triumph of obscurantism, while Anna is being held prisoner by the Gestapo without knowing if she will be released, a sparkling debate unfolds on human freedom, injustice and the human condition. And Martin Randez does well at showing a lw of weakness in a Gestapo officer who has something to hide.

From this moment on, the play veers between laughter and tears. If you do, it means ls you believe. Finally, it was the turn of the TV and radio people. The most amusing section of the play is when Freud, assuming the Visitor is demanding a private session, tries to psychoanalyze him with no success. Sincerity is a form of humanism.
