Jimmy P.

7 / 10 (704)


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. There he starts a psychotherapy with Georges Devereux, a French anthropologist, psychoanalyst and specialist in Native American culture.

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.
