Hide &amp  Seek
Hi CS and fellow forumites.

Did anyone watch the movie called Hide &  Seek? (The one with Robert de Nero)
Very interesting hey. What is that mental disorder called?

CS, do you know of such a disorder and how it works? (hope you have seen it)
It was obviously triggered by seeing his wife kissing another man.

I didn't see the movie, and while de Niro usually chooses rather good movies, this one sounds like fictitious nonsense. No disorder is triggered so easily. and if it is based on Multiple Personality disorder / DID ( Dissociative Identity Disorder ), then it is irresponsible to make films depicting this condition as real, naturally occuring and interesting - it is a rare disorder aused by naive therapists.
