    french film about psychoanalysis and autism, with english subtitles


    This 52 minutes movie is the result of 4 years of investigation among 30 psychiatrists and psychoanalysts in France and shows the way they see autism and deal with children with autism. 50 years of progress in science do not seem to have had any influence on their dogmatism.

    For more than thirty years, the international scientific community has acknowledged that autism is a neurological disorder that is the cause of a handicap in social interaction.

    In France, psychiatry, being very largely dominated by psychoanalysis, ignores these discoveries.

    To psychoanalysts, autism is a psychosis, in other words, a major psychic disorder resulting from a bad maternal relationship.


    Thanks to this film, 3 large French lawfirm  are instituting a lawsuit against the french government.
