PAIVA, Maria Lucia de Souza Campos. Suppression and repression: a theoretical discussion illustrated by a movie. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.2, n.2, pp. 229-241. ISSN 2236-6407.

The first translations of Freud's work into Portuguese have presented problems because they were not translated from the German language. More than a hundred years after the beginning of Psychoanalysis, there are still many discussions on Freud's metapsychology and a considerable difficulty in obtaining a consensus on the translation of some concepts. This paper refers back to Freud's concepts of primal repression, repression and suppression. In order to discuss such concepts, we have made use of a film, co-produced by Germans and Argentineans, which is named "The Song in me" (Das Lied in mir), released to the public in 2011 and directed by Florian Micoud Cossen. Through this motion picture, the following of Freud's concepts are analyzed, and the differentiation between them is discussed: suppression and repression, as well as the importance of their precise translation.

Palavras-chave : psychoanalysis; repression (defense mechanism); unconscious (personality factor).
