The present article aims at criticizing and analyzing the "Subdued" (Rag-E Khab) film from psychology point of view. The film is Hamid Nematollah's fourth movie that deals with the story of a woman namely, Mina, who has recently divorced from her husband and is looking for a job and shelter for life that become friend with Kamran, the manager of a restaurant. It’s the beginning of a tumultuous journey for Mina. Finally, Mina achieves a great evolution in her life after overcoming many difficulties and leaving Kamran. The emphasis of the filmmaker on expressing the mental world and the psychic layers of the main female character of the movie made it possible to analyze the film from the opinion of Jeffre E. Young's schema theory. Based on the division of the film into two halves; first and second, one can analyze the changes of the main female character of the film and her relationship with the main male character from the perspective of Young's schema. The main question of the present research is which schemas can be identified in the main female character of the film. The information used in this paper has been gathered through library and research by descriptive-analytic methodology. The results of this study show that the film can be analyzed on the basis of two schemas of "abandonment" and "dependence" in the main female character that can be considered as one of the factors influencing the bitter problems and experiences of her life in the film. The first half of the film is devoted to the formation and intensification of these two schemas, and finally in the second half of the film, we are moving towards a change of schemas.
