Sabina and Emma talk briefly about whether they've met, and Emma's children.
Marked as dubious because Mrs north5 insists they were really just talking obliquely about Carl (they were, really).

A very brief scene where its obvious the wife is sizing up the mistress/vice versa.

The movie is absolutely about Jung and Sabina- the Jung-Freud relationship is not as central as it was marketed.

I feel like this movie only passed the test by an inch or two. At the same time, I feel like it was the type of movie that could have been misogynistic and totally wasn't. Both Sabina and Emma were incredibly strong women in a society that didn't accept such women.
