Premiere de "Jimmy P" avec Mathieu Amalric et Benicio Del Toro

07/12/2014 from 13:00 to 15:30

So Film will be celebrating their one-year anniversary by showing Arnaud Desplechin's new film, Jimmy P. The film was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 but it has never been shown in the UK. It is therefore a unique opportunity and it is really worth not missing it.

Anyone who has seen other films by Desplechin, will know that psychoanalysis is a recurring theme (Kings and Queen, A Christmas Tale, My Sex Life…). For over twenty years, Arnaud Desplechin had been dreaming of adapting this book by Georges Devereux, Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian.

 

 

The Plot:

At the end of World War II, Jimmy Picard (Benicio Del Toro), a Native American Blackfoot who fought in France, is admitted to Topeka Military Hospital in Kansas - an institution specialising in mental illness. Jimmy suffers from numerous symptoms: dizzy spells, temporary blindness, hearing loss... In the absence of any physiological causes, he is diagnosed as schizophrenic. Nevertheless, the hospital management decides to seek the opinion of Georges Devereux (Mathieu Amalric), a French anthropologist, psychoanalyst and specialist in Native American culture.
