Review for Hysteria R Comedy
by John Thielking
Hysteria chronicles the life of a young Dr. Mortimer Granville (Hugh
Dancy) who is trying to make his mark on the world in the 1880's
with talk of revolutionizing medicine using the latest science that
indicates that germs are the cause of disease, but his bosses at
various hospitals where he is employed will have nothing of it.
Eventually he finds a Dr. Dalrymple (Johnathan Pryce) who is
treating women diagnosed with Hysteria using genital stimulation.
The young Dr. Granville's hand proves to be so stimulating for most
women who come through the clinic that soon the doctor's appointment
book is full. Unfortunately, Dr. Granville soon gets a bad
case of carpal tunnel syndrome and is forced to retire from that
part of the business. The inventor he lives with, however, has
something up his sleeve that just might save the day. Five stars.
This movie ranks as nonviolent because it has only 5 violent
scenes. These include: a woman imagines a murder scene while
talking to someone, there is a story of someone's parents dieing in
an epidemic, a woman runs into a man while riding her bike, a woman
gets beat up and a woman slaps a man.
The previews include two nonviolent commercials and nonviolent
previews for Hyde Park On Hudson, The Intouchables, Lola Versus and
To Rome With Love.
