The movie works well as drama and you need not bring more than a basic reading of the subject of the human ego versus the darker impulses of humankind to understand the stakes at hand. It is a sometimes sexually explicit but not graphic by modern standards. The drama also comes from the tension between Jung as a professional physician at a Swiss hospital and his realization that his patient/lover Sabina is the love of his life but also capable of destroying both his scientific standing and his domestic happiness. Like all good human stories, this one is complex enough to remind us that men and women are more complex than what you can put down in a textbook. I found the film very intriguing and I think anyone interested in these two giants delving and grasping the rudiments of a scientific method of understanding human behavior and development will too.
