The Author presents some reflections about Anima as a bridge to the relationship with the Self and the other, a function proposed as a reading key of the movie Night Train to Lisbon (B. August, 2013). Raimund Gregoius, the main character, at the beginning appears to be identified with the perspective of the Ego complex, but an unexpected meeting will be the starting point of a real and symbolic journey led by Anima, the vital function which his life was completely depleted of. Anima will be embodied by people, histories and situations and will mediate the gradual discovery of Raimund’s psychic parts and functions previously silent, thus allowing the reactivation of the dialectic between opposites and of his individuation process.
