To illustrate his theory on the complexities of human behavior, Professor Laborit selects three destinies: Jean, a careerist middle class man, Janine, an actress of humble origins, and René, a farmer’s son who manages his own textile company. All face difficult choices in life-changing situations.

MUBI's take

One of Alain Resnais’ most surprising box-office successes, the quixotic My American Uncle, starring Gérard Depardieu, offers a playful critique of modern society. Based on ideas from neurobiology, this absorbing and outlandish endeavor revolves around a bristling trio of characters.
