N.28 - Psychoanalysis and Cinema: “Through a glass”

The movie is about a special form of creative nostalgia

Abstract

Midnight in Paris” by Woody Allen is a movie that deals with the concept of  remembrance of the past. I have used a some conceptual ideas proposed by the late analyst Pier Mario Masciangelo. In his work Masciangelo elucidated in a very creative manner the function of nostalgia as an important aspect of psychic functioning. The film moves from the past to the present to the future as a way to find, reshape and elaborate early objects in our mind in order to find a creative solution.
