“Using ideas about the transformation of the self that C. G. Jung found in alchemical texts, the film depicts the role solutio and coniunctio play in the process of individuation. The special effects, created mostly in-camera, have alchemical meanings (e.g., the union of fire and water).” —R. Bruce Elder
