Jimmy P.

7.4 / 10 (897)


At the end of WWII, Jimmy Picard, a Native American Blackfoot who fought in France, suffers from unexplainable symptoms and is admitted to a military hospital. When doctors suspect schizophrenia, an eccentric psychoanalyst takes up the case and starts a conversation with the veteran.

MUBI's take

One of French director Arnaud Desplechin’s strangest yet most compelling melodramas, Jimmy P is a poignant character portrait of a unique cross-cultural friendship. Based on an unusual real-life story, this offbeat film is also a tremendous showcase for actors Benicio Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric.
